WELCOME TO ROOM 40
Welcome to my class. I look forward to another productive year of learning and growing. I am here to help students reach their greatest potential. I have had the pleasure of working at Marvin Magnet school for the past twenty-one years. Teaching is one of the things I enjoy. My primary goal as a teacher is to bring a love of lifelong learning to all my students. The experiences of the past 21 years have been amazing. My students have come from a variety of different backgrounds and together we have built long lasting bonds. I have high expectations for each student and work diligently to help him/her achieve them. I believe that every child is capable of reaching academic success with the right tools and guidance. Motivation is the most important factor in learning and without that dreams are not actualized. I believe that in order for success to be accomplished in the classroom, a partnership must be forged between teacher, parents, and student. Together, we will work to make this year exceptional.
Through connection, cooperation, and collaboration students work together to complete project based learning goals across the curriculum areas. The biggest goals for the 2018-19 school year is to have every student meet and exceed grade level standards and be college and career ready.
Students must remember that Marvin Avenue follow the three Bs. Be Respectful. Be Responsible. Be Safe.
The same rules apply for both outside and inside the classroom. Students keep in mind that correct behavior should be maintained at all times.
