Our Classroom Culture
If you walk into our classroom, you will find yourself in an environment where learning is rigorous, fun, and student centered. I aim to create an instructional program that accommodates individual students' interest and abilities as active learners, while working towards understanding and achieving Common Core State Standards and becoming lifelong critical thinkers. In our classroom, students are part of the learning process, not the outcome of it.
"The strength in our classroom lies in the collaboration of learners, not in the knowledge of one expert."
La Canada Unified School District has fully embraced Common Core implementation. In teacher teams, we have designed Common Core State Standard pacing guides and assessments that we will be using with our third grade classes in order to help prepare them for changes in language, rigor, and depth that Common Core Standards provide.
