Class Description:
My class consists of students from a variety of ethic and cultural backgrounds. We are a Title One school with approximately 85% of our students receiving free or reduced breakfast/lunch. Transient rate is high with current turn over of 11 students this year. I stress integration of subjects and work with students learning to plan, collaborate, and produce products. I strongly feel that collaboration is one of the skills that will help them throughout their education and in the work force. However, at times this can be challenging as we have little in the way of supplies or technology. I should mention that our classroom was created after the year started due to overcrowding.
Position:
Teacher
Needs:
A dedicated laptop, projector with document camera, and Smart Board. A class set of netbooks would be wonderful! However, this is probably a pipe dream.
My Philosophy:
All students have talents and special abilities. It is my job to help students discover these and to apply them to their learning. I want my students to be self motivated life long learners. If I can get a child to want to learn about a topic/area on their own without me assigning that learning experience then I have done my job.
