The kids I have in the West Delaware classes are wonderful, but much of the time, I am just their facilitator. I give them a series of tasks, and a week to complete them. They are divided into teams and work things through. Really, my role as their teacher is to communicate with them as needed (I rotate through each of the groups several times each period) and then GET OUT OF THE WAY. They let me know if they need something. They let me understand their needs. I could just as easily manage most of their needs via txt, phone, or online communication. I'm finding that I need to be a resource for them, and I need a 15 minute per day class meeting to check progress, and introduce new concerns. The rest of the time I am the person who helps with individual differentiation.
This is Tanner Kelly and I figured I would e-mail you and say how much your class has prepared me for college science. I'm currently taking one biology course at Simpson and I absolutely love it. I feel way ahead of the rest of the students and actually helping students in the class. If it wasn't for your class and the time management skills I learned from you, its hard telling where I would be. I'll keep you posted on my success and maybe send you some stuff that I have been learning. Just had an exam over monosaccharides and polysaccharides in the digestive system along with peptides and pepsinogens. Thank you so much Mrs. W!
