I strive to make my classroom developmentally appropriate and centered around the needs of each individual child. In my classroom you will find these characteristics built around my philosophy:
- Community of Learners: My classroom is a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment for all of my students. Students will gain independence and self awareness, as well as the ability to function as a member of a group.
- Positive Classroom Management: Children in my classroom will be expected to follow classroom rules and conduct themselves in a manner that is safe and respectful. Good behavior and manners will be positively recognized throughout the school day.
- Balanced Literacy Program: Children in my classroom will participate in a variety of activities exposing them to the meaning and excitement of language. Students will participate in whole group as well as differentiated literacy instruction including the use of literacy stations, modeled and shared skills, and independent practice.
