"People learn from people they love." -David Brooks
Our classes are made up of many personalities. Our normal may not be their normal because they are not growing up the way we grew up. Some do not have families like we may have had who talked through difficult issues, gave us advice as to how to handle those issues, expected us to follow the rules and handed out appropriate consequences when needed. We are a special school because we love our kids hard. Keep on keeping on and always remember that we learn from those we love. Be a student of your students. Learn what makes them tick, what motivates them, what matters to them. Tailor your lessons to reach those students who seem unreachable and remember that one size does not fit all. We are entering the second nine weeks. Let's proclaim that this is the nine weeks where great success will occur for every student!

I will be giving each grade money to purchase books for your classroom libraries. Please use your inventories to purchase books that will excite your students. We are in the process of adding books to our literacy closet and will let you know as soon as they arrive. I have on my list to purchase document cameras so that you can show students text as you read to them. Please let me know if already have one.
