Bangor, Michigan
Class Information:
Room Number: 136
Students per Class: 85
Class Description:
I teach English 7, English 8, English 10, and Speech.
High School English Teacher
I need books, technology, and tools to help transform my English classroom into a highly engaged classroom. I am specifically looking at an Elmo to help visual learners with writing and sharing. I am also looking at a color printer to help with classroom projects, displayed, and published pieces.
My Philosophy:
I believe every child has the right and ability to learn, but they learn at their own pace. The more opportunities students have, the better. Education is helping students see what their potential is and then achieving that and more!
