Welcome to our classroom!
I am excited to guide these third graders and hope to instill them with leadership and interpersonal skills that will equip them to be effective communicators. We will be discovering topics such as civic engagement, introductory economics, plants, and American culture. We will be actively engaging in the content of the lessons to aid in the learning process by using Readers Theater, literature circles, Socratic seminars, as well as other hands-on activities for all the subject areas.
I am a strong believer in the growth mindset and will consistently model this attitude in the classroom. By encouraging the students at a young age that their effort can lead them to accomplish whatever they set their minds to, they will become active, rather than passive, participants in learning. My hope is that this teaching method will inspire them to be comfortable with accepting difficult challenges and help them to develop their own methods to solving them.
