4th Grade, Room 404
My Bucket-Filling Classroom
I 've been teaching since 1997. I passionately promote an environment of safety, trust, and respect in my classroom. Come in and see how we build character, teamwork, and community every single day.
We use the Bucket Filler approach based on the popular book Have You Filled A Bucket Today? to create a safe and comfortable atmosphere for us to learn and show growth.
I have an Academically/Intellectually Gifted Teaching Endorsement. I am also LLI trained to teach intensive intervention reading. I am SIOP II trained to teach students of other language background.
In my class, we become reflective thinkers in our learning journals called Daybooks. We reflect on what we have learned or are still confused about and how we can improve. We become inspired and create goals and then plans on how to achieve those goals.
On the first day of school, each of us takes a pledge to take charge of our learning not just for this year, but for life!
Student + Teacher = Learning
Go Team Teske!
