My Classroom
About My Classroom: 

My classroom is a safe learning environment where  risk taking is encouraged.  I give students the opportunity to make many choices in the classroom so as to empower each child to be responsible for their own learning. I also encourage cooperative learning and push each child to achieve their highest potential.
