 Teaching Philosophy

While many classrooms have desks and tables, my classroom is an open learning area for students to move around and learn. While this is not the norm it has drastically reduced student beahavior issues and increased student engagement. Here is what you will see when you enter my classroom:

My classroom is:

student centered

technology use relevant to students


"open classroom" to learn

consistent brain breaks

"choice seating"

students choose reading material

student engagement

My classroom isn't:

teacher centered

paper/pencil assignments all the time

one student answers all the questions

desks and tables for students to sit

assigned seats

teacher directed reading materials

silent working at all times
