Everyday Mathematics
Graduated with bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Colorado
7th year teaching at Quest/Homyak, 3rd year in Kindergarten!
Earned Master's degree in Special Education from Grand Canyon University

I believe...
I don't come to work every day, I come to school (and I love it!)
Forming relationships with kids is the most important thing to me.
Every child can learn and grow.
Respect is given and received.
Expectations are set high in my room, and students will reach them with hard work and effort!
My students are the future, and I take that very seriously!
The National Educator's Association recommends 10 minutes of homework per grade (i.e 1st grade=10 min., 5th grade=50 min.)
Too much homework has negative results on elementary school students
Alternative homework provides:
Choice for students
Positive reinforcement; no punishments for incomplete work
Discovery and extension of learning
Studies show that 20 minutes of reading per night drastically improves literacy skills!
Additionally, recognition of high frequency words is HUGE for foundational literacy skills!
Book Bags
Sight Word Sticker Books (later in the year)
Positive Behavior & Good Manners
Throughout the year, I will use a variety of management techniques. My main forms of classroom management that focus on positive behavior are:
-Clip Chart (clip up for good choices, clip down for poor choices. Each child starts over on green each day.
-Class Dojo (students have Dojo monsters that earn gemstones each day they clip to the top of the chart.

Husky Folders
Husky folders will be sent home weekly with mail (school forms, classwork, etc.)
Once mail is taken home, please return empty folder to Mrs. Page so we can start stuffing it with more great work again!

Writing Centers
Handwriting without
We will do fun writing projects that relate to units we are learning about to integrate subjects and show learning in different ways!

Writing centers are designed to reach each student individually through the small groups. There are still high expectations while differentiating for all levels. Students will have targets to meet each day for their writing, and by showing these targets in their own writing, they will improve writing skills and increase the amount they write each day.

Clip Chart
Positive Behavior/Classroom
Each day, students start on 'green'.
Positive behavior allows students to clip up; negative behavior requires students to clip down.
Students who clip to the top of the chart and stay there until the end of the day earn a stone for their Dojo!
5 stones= Class coupon/prize
20 stones= Dojo Wall of Fame & New Dojo!
Students who clip down to the bottom of the chart will visit Mrs. Garcia's office to discuss behavior/call home.
Foundational handwriting program that uses explicit, multisensory instruction to teach good habits.
15 minutes of instruction that is developmental (easiest skills first, build on prior knowledge).
Ex. Capitals are all taught first due to their simplicity; all made of 4 shapes
One large part of HWT is quality pencil grip, and all these habits are taught correctly now to ensure good handwriting later as well.
I believe:
Learning should take place first and foremost in the classroom, with homework being a way to practice and enhance learning.
Un-homework gives choices that are engaging and rigorous, which promote learning despite not being countless worksheets.
As a 5th grade teacher, I have seen homework years down the road; let them be little!
Library with Ms. Patty (Thursdays)
-Bravery and Smart Thinking Marble Jar (class goal
to exceed expectations academically, as well as take risks and be brave. This is one of my favorite management systems in my room because it's very individualized for each child.
