Welcome to my site!
This year students will be using this site more than they probably have in the past. I will be implementing a "flipped" strategy, which requires the students to watch short videos, or do some small assignment prior to entering my classroom. By doing this, much of my direct instruction can be accomplished outside of the classroom, leaving class time for more hands on activities.
Also, this year, the school will be running a series of Project Based Learning (PBL) activities. You will hear PBL mentioned frequently. The basic premise is that students will be working through a series of activities, guided by their teachers, but driven by the students efforts. Each activity has real world results, and will benefit the CHMS or Liverpool community. This is a huge endeavor, and will require much work of the students and teachers in order to be successful, which I'm sure we will be.
Due to both of these activity methods, there will be times throughout the year where I will be recording classroom activities. The videos will be showing the processes being taught, and our involvement in the teaching of those processes and and your children. The district has a form you can sign if you'd prefer not to have your child involved in the video pieces.
Lastly, I am a National Board Certified teacher, which is the highest level of teaching accreditation. This is achievement is accomplished through a rigorous series of exercises, tests, and reflections, which in turn yield a higher skill in my craft of teaching. I share this with you, only to reinforce that I am willing to go the distance to be the best that I can be, so that I can help your child be the best that they can be. For your child, this means a better overall learning experience. For more information please watch the video or call me at CHMS.
Thank you for support.
