Mission & Vision Statement

The concept of a micro school opens the door for so much more than what a traditional classroom can offer. Students in my full-time learning pod will receive individualized instruction as well as structured enhanced social skills through group activities and project-based learning. I challenge my students to go outside of their comfort zone and reach their fullest potential.

Curriculum

ELA

Regarding my reading curriculum, I teach specific phonics and vocabulary instruction through the Orton Gillingham Multisensory Reading Program so students can learn how to decode unknown words through various sounds and word parts. I also use Columbia University’s Teachers College Readers and Writers Workshop Program to teach students various reading comprehension skills and to enhance their writing development.

Social studies

US History, World Cultures, and field trips.

Students will learn how to become productive members of society as well as critical thinkers by studying what a community is and what it means to be an active member of that community. I teach my students about wants and needs and goods and services that are provided that can fulfill what people need every day to live. We also discuss how everything in a community is connected. Part of my social studies curriculum involves teaching about the world outside of our community: how we live on a street, that is a part of a town, that is in a state, that is part of our country, which is on a continent that is part of the larger world. This leads to lessons about geography including continents and oceans, states and countries, and understanding how to read and use maps and symbols. We also talk about how some people may need help and that we need to take care of each other. From there, my students and I put together and participate in several community service projects around the holidays. We study various holidays that are celebrated around the world all throughout the year. We spend a lot of time learning about important people and events surrounding Black History and Women's History.

Math

I implement a similar mentality to my mathematics instruction by incorporating visuals, rhymes and hand gestures in my instruction and allow students to use manipulatives to practice new concepts. I have teaching experience with Go Math! and Singapore Math’s Math in Focus curriculum programs.

I incorporate visuals, rhymes, hand gestures and hands on activities into all of my mathematics instruction. I encourage students to use manipulatives and we use hands-on activities to practice various concepts as much as possible. Another part of my instruction involves real world problem solving and using different strategies to answer mathematical questions, as well as coaching students on how to explain their thought processes for how they solved a problem. I have formal experience in teaching GO Math! and Singapore Math programs.

Science

I like to incorporate as many hands-on experiments as possible while teaching science topics. Mystery Science and Generation Genius have both been great resources to use for my science instruction.

For my science instruction, I teach about what a scientist is and does, what the steps of the Scientific Method are, and why we need them to learn about the world. We then use the Scientific Method to teach and learn about scientific topics throughout the school year including: states of matter and how it changes, energy, force and motion, magnetism, and the life cycles of plants and animals. I implement hands-on activities and experiments for students to participate in and explore as much as possible, which really brings these concepts to life!
