However, life can be busy and I know not all families will be available to come and meet me. If you’re not going to make it tonight – no worries use this post as a Virtual Meet the Teacher.
I thought I’d use this post to explain a little more about me, and my goals for the start of the year.
First, I am a new teacher to PDCS and I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Mr. D. (Dustin) Carson. I am entering my eighth year of teaching. My specialist is Phys-ed and I have some expertise in embedding technology to support many different learning goals. Regardless of the subject I work hard to put the needs of each student first! Early in my Education Journey I found a quote that supports my teaching philosophy.
|Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.–William James|
I know I have the ability to make a difference, so I strive to make school a positive place to be. At anytime throughout the year if you would like to meet and discuss the needs of a student, then do not hesitate to set up a meeting. Also, I encourage students to ask for help when they need it. Communicating needs is important to assist me in developing strategies that will help accomplish individual goals.
I hope to help my class develop a variety of skills that will help them be successful in whatever pathway they decide to take. To start the year I have a class goal of helping students improve their Learning Skills. We will completing many activities that are designed to improve their independent work, and organization. As a student progresses further into their education they have more responsibility, and just like other skills it takes practice. If you notice them falling behind – encourage them to ask for help – my door is always open.
Again, I look forward to meeting all of you at 6 – 7 tonight, but if you were unable to make it feel free to stop in and introduce yourself when you can.
