Hello and Welcome to Room 111!
"Room 111 Students are "Owl-Stars"
2016 - 2017
I will be teaching a multi-age class as well as my teammate, Mrs. Vrooman. We have worked together for twenty years at Cooper and Cleveland. Our educational philosophy is similar and our professional relationship is one of respect and trust. Our teaching styles compliment one another and the students have enjoyed our humor as well as benefited from our structure and expectations
The benefits of a multi-age classroom are that children learn from one another as well as the teacher. Diversity of skills and learning styles are accepted and accommodated by grouping and regrouping students in academic areas.
The common goals for both classrooms are:
*Children are allowed to evolve developmentally.
*Multi-age fosters a cooperative spirit.
*Individual differences are celebrated.
*Build leadership in all students.
*Create a cohesive family atmosphere.
We will begin the year getting to know one another and sharing ideas. Each child will be interviewed. The children will ask questions to your son or daughter. We will record the answers and compile the interviews in a class book.
Your son or daughter will learn so much and you will be amazed at the growth they make both academically and socially. This will be a remarkable year of learning - full of curious and new ideas eager to work together!
