Stuart's Spectacular Students

This is dedicated to my amazing students. The goal is for each and every one of them to feel unstoppable by the time they walk out of the classroom door for the final time in May. This chronicles their journey; their own Chronicles of Self-Actualization.

VIDEOS ~ Show Me You Understand What You Read (vids 1, 2 & 3)

After failing a test on a book he read, the teacher goes over with the student the missed questions. When the student was asked why he missed questions such as the difference between Mercury's orbit and Neptune's, he didn't know why he couldn't recall that information for the test.

When the student was asked to show the difference between the two planets' orbits, he did it easily.

Kinesthetic, or active, learners can't always get up during a written test, but they can be taught how to see movement in their mind.

This is what Miguel did during the next book he read, and scored a 100%! He began the year basically reading at a 3rd grade level, and as the video shows, is now capable of achieving perfection at the 5th grade level.

The lady in holding "the sun" is Ms. Ammal, who comes in to help Miguel read....and also teach us Arabic!

I've had to remove all student pictures and videos. I'm sorry.

    Taneicea. We miss you and think of you every day. It was a blessing to have you among us. Your courage to face your fears of speaking in front of others, your willingness to risk failure over and over again, has inspired me to name an award after you for the rest of all time. How do I get in touch with you? Where could I find you?
