Mr. Rodney Little
Welcome to my website! My name is Rodney Little. This is my 7th year teaching Careers. I co-teach with Jennae Elder. Mrs Elder teaches Business, Management, and Administration. Overall, I have 25 years experience in education with Polk School District. I am excited about another great year!
My Philosophy: I strongly believe the key to student learning begins with a teacher who cares and motivates the students. Students must believe in themselves in order to become successful learners. My motto is "If a student believes then he/she can achieve!" In order for students to become successful, it is imperative to create lessons that are developmentally appropriate. I aspire to recognize the uniqueness of each student and his/her educational needs. Learning each student's strengths and weaknesses through assessments and observations allows me to differentiate individual instruction. I feel it is necessary to provide learning experiences that meet all learning modalities. In addition, all students benefit from multisensory learning experiences. Most importantly, I make learning exciting and fun! I encourage the development of skills like integrity, honesty, responsibility, cooperation and patience. It is a privilege to be a part of molding your child and motivating him/her to become a lifelong learner. I believe that it takes a team to educate children: the students, the parents, the staff, the administration, the teachers, and the community. I look forward to working with everyone to make this a great year.
