Updated Bulletin Board

BRAVO BOARD: It just feels good to get something done that you've been wanting to do for YEARS! Now it is the eye-catching display I was hoping for. Students are excited to put their work up and track their progress. I really enjoyed making my growth mindset bulletin board behind the computers: LEARN acrostic: Reflect Solve Create Grow Think

Reading is so important to me! So I wanted to make sure there was a reading "nook" where they can read somewhere comfortable and fun! You can never have too many pillows and stuffed animals.

Great Beginning to the 2017-18 School Year!

Meet the new 5th Grade Team 

I'm so proud to be your team leader! 

Our new team is such a great fit! I'm happy to have a new teammate this year. I am ready to push my Cambridge students to their highest potential. Chuck - our school is incredibly lucky to have you and I know our students are enjoying both of our shenanigans. Thanks for being a great co-teacher and getting them excited for math. Val is sporting the pink hat and Whit is always fashionable (are you checking out those rain boots?!) Those girls are such a great inspiration and will always keep a smile on my face. Love you guys!

We are the #superfive and we will be ready to take our students to the next level. I can't wait to see how far our students go! Visit our school's Twitter Page and hit the "FOLLOW" button. Our teachers have more passion than any other school and we share innovative instructional practices. Looking forward to an amazing year!

Harry Potter - Yes please!

Every classroom needs a touch of magic - when technology isn't working the way it should!

I have technology problems frequently in my classroom. Let's face it, things happen and we just have to roll with it. Either someone accidentally unplugs something at the student computers or something goes wrong unexpectedly. Whatever the case may be... when you are in the middle of teaching a lesson or at the guided reading table, it isn't easy to stop a go help another student at the computer. So, in the event of a computer malfunction just have them put up one of these signs and it lets other students know that computer is "temporarily" not working or out of order. Then it gives everyone something fun to look at and acts as a reminder to put in a work order at your convenience! I hope this brings a smile to your face and it makes life easier.
