SuperStar 5th Grade Teacher

Mr. Chip James aka dancer, actor, artist

Sure, I can do that...

Need help in an instant? Just ask the drama teacher, the actor, and artist, Mr. Chip James. He's come a long way in perfecting his classroom art of teaching as well. He makes learning engaging and motivating to his challenging 5th graders. And, when asked to perform as the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz, or to see Girl Scout Cookies, no is not in his vocabulary.

What colleagues and administrators say...

He is a joy to work with. He always looks for ways to motivate students and yet also looks at ways to be proactive in preventing discipline issues. He's also working on managerial methods that help him stay on top of the 1,000's of things going on. Anything that is thrown at Mr. James, he accepts with a positive attitude and a willingness to achieve.
