Instructional Program, Focus, & Goals

My goal is ensuring that our students receive a rigorous yet supportive instructional program in English and Spanish. Throughout the year, our classroom will practice Restorative Circles once a week to build a supportive culture for all students. Moreover, this year we are incorporating goal setting to cultivate a mastery orientation. Studies show that students do better when they feel in control of their learning. Robert Marzano's (2019) review of research, for example, finds goal setting can produce student learning gains of between 18 to 41 percentile points. Goal setting help students focus on specific outcomes, encourage them to seek academic challenges, and make clear the connection between immediate tasks and future accomplishments.
