My Classroom Mission
In addition to producing the most awesome yearbook NIHS has ever seen and covering the English II goals set by the NCDPI (which we will most certainly master!), my mission is to create an environment where every individual experiences these ABC's:
ACCEPTANCE: I accept ALL students for exactly who they are- no judgements.
BELONGING: I wish for ALL students to feel as if they belong to and are vital members of a class/family where ALL learn from/with one another every day.
COMPETENCE: I believe that ALL students are competent enough to take responsibility for their learning in terms of effort, attention, actions, behaviors, goal setting, and striving.
