Barbara Rundles

Hello there my name is Ms. Rundles.  I will be teaching 5th grade at Jenny Lind. This year I will be working on building relationship and pushing my students to make personal growth and to see their Full potintial as learners. I ustilize many teaching strategies such as group work, independent work, modeling, turn and talks as well as hands on learning.I think that it is important for my students to learn to think critically.  The use of higher level thinking will be encouraged within my classroom. I believe in being a culturally resonsive teacher is key to learning. As stated by Zaretta Hammond, Culturally responsive teaching is really about building relationships and validating students. Ensuring the academic success of students takes care and a little tough love.
