• You will receive daily messages through Class DOJO to stay informed about your child's day. (Make sure you have signed up!)  I focus on positive behaviors and reward those following the class rules.  My classroom rules are based on the Whole Brain Teaching model.

    The Rules of the Classroom

    Rule #1 Follow directions quickly!
    Rule #2 Raise your hand for permission to speak!
    Rule #3 Raise your hand for permission to leave your seat!
    Rule #4 Make smart choices!
    Rule #5 Keep your dear teacher happy!

    Our classroom rules not only efficiently activate five areas of every student’s brain (visual cortex, motor cortex, Broca’s area, Wernicke’s area, and limbic system) but also, because they are frequently rehearsed, involve the brain’s mirror neurons. Orderly behavior creates the mirroring of orderly behavior… which causes teachers and students to mirror each other’s happy faces.
