AIM (Accelerate, Innovate, Motivate) is a program uniquely & exclusively offered for elementary aged students in the Manor Independent District. Students will engage in TEKs related brain teasers, collaborate in Project Based Learning opportunities, and have time to enrich their day through various interest stations. At the Blake Manor Elementary Campus, I meet with each grade level once a week for 3 hours at a time.
The Value of Relationships
What are we but relational creatures? Not only are there interpersonal relationships but we go beyond that! We share this world with about 7.5 billion people and the value that each person can bring makes this world beautiful. Students will get a chance to capture that beauty through a deeper understanding of the relationships around them.
Impacts to Systems
Having systems in place aides our society to run efficiently. When something operates outside of the system, one of two things happen: (a) a new discovery is made. (b) the entire system crashes. Our fourth graders will have the opportunity to discover those system changers and make a system all on their own.
Hi! This is my 6th year in education and I have been with Blake Manor Elementary all six years! I graduated with a B.S. in Applied Learning & Development (EC-6) from the University of Texas at Austin. I am ESL, PBL, & GT trained and utilize all aspects of those in my pedagogy.
My CORE passions (and WHY I teach) include: impacting the next generation, helping young students see that they are lifelong learners, and that they are integral members of their learning communities. I love seeing people smile/laugh and I strive to make learning a positive experience for all!
Some of my favorites include: giraffes, the color green, anything Marvel related, traveling & photography, dark chocolate, genuinity, and nice smelling candles.
