Language Instruction Educational Program
I am looking forward to a great year at Scotland and Grandview Elementary Schools!
Let me tell you about our classroom:
I value each student as a unique learner. We are a family and I want everyone to treat each other with respect for our thoughts, opinions, and values.
I will hold you to high expectations. We will set learning goals for each new unit we do. You will graph your data and track your growth as a student.
I want you to have self-efficacy. That’s a fancy word that means: belief in your self. If you know you can do it and don’t give up you have good self-efficacy. I want you to believe in yourself. I believe in you!
You will have choices when working on projects. I will let you make many project choices. I want you doing activities and studying topics that interests you, things that will motivate you to learn and want to learn more. I will do my part to make learning fun, but I will need your help too.
I will call home to talk to parents. I will also send home notes with topics we will be studying. Parents can also contact me by phone or by email. I will reply as soon as I can. If there is a question that I do not know the answer to, like something happening in a homeroom or elsewhere, I will find an answer and get back as soon as possible.
I like to say that I'm the momma bird. I will help my students when we need it but I’ll be like a real momma bird too. I'll kick my students out of the nest to watch them fly. My students have heard me say before that they are my kids and I want the best for them. I will do what I can to help them succeed. I want them to take ownership and responsibility for their actions and education.
Welcome to our class!
