Cedar Creek Elementary School
Class Information:
Room Number: 302
Students per Class: 24-30
Class Description:
Long L shaped room with windows along the east wall. It has three sinks, on the north side, with cabinet spaces above and below. On the opposite end of the room there are some more cabinet storage areas. I have eight sets of tables for centers. I have two old dell computers with windows 2000 next to a white board along the west wall. There is a long narrow hallway with cabinets along one side that leads from the main part of the classroom to the main hallway of the school.
Art Teacher
I use technology in the classroom whenever possible. I just recently got a grant to install an interactive whiteboard in my classroom. The kids love coming up to the front and using it. We need a Flip camcorder so that we can take videos of students creating how-to-videos for the younger students to follow along with as they create their art projects. Plus, I can create videos of students creating art projects for a grant that the other art teachers and I are working on.
My Philosophy:
I believe every child can succeed in a positive. caring, and innovative atmosphere. Never say "I can't...".
