Paige Peoples is a 1st Grade Teacher at Ruppel Academie Francaise School
How do you build relationships with students?
I try my best to make sure rewards and books inspire their interests, so they know I care about what they like! I will also write individualized notes to let them know I see the good things they do.
Is there a song that you have all of the lyrics memorized?
I can confidently say I know all the lyrics to the Hamilton soundtrack!
What makes a "good day" at school?
Any day where I feel like every child is engaged in the lessons. I love getting to see their faces light up when they finally get it.
How do you think students will remember you and your class?
I think they will remember the fun activities I plan for the class to make my lessons more engaging. I also think they will remember the caterpillars we raised as a class!
What is your favorite thing about teaching in a public school?
My favorite thing about teaching in a public school is the diversity of my class. I love getting to learn about their cultures! It leads to many compelling discussions.
