Teacher Mission Statement/aka What Ms. Jessica Caldwell offers as your child’s educator explained through her authentic mission statement- Teaching is intentional; it is my practice to teach your child the tools they need to have for the high school level, but most importantly the collegiate level and business level. I will do this through: data based differentiation through frequent individual ability assessments, analysing my students through formative assessment, shared inquiry, document based inquiry, and by teaching students to read in the world and understand vocabulary in all of the vast forms in which it is used in their world and will be used in their future for their success! My teaching techniques will create a learned ability for communication, formal and informal presentation, professionalism, and written expression of knowledge that has been processed and obtained in their memory. My teaching is not standardized and will allow for student choice and interest in summative assessments. All of this will be possible through simply working my hardest to learn and know who each and everyone of my students are as people. Throughout the year, I will create a warm and welcoming learning environment that will accommodate and keep each student in a safe and secure place of learning. My students will receive no less than my utmost abilities to help ensure their future and present will be a success that is geared towards their goals and dreams. Twenty first century learners learn through “real” and that is how I teach; there will be no facade of perfection with me, and that is why I will compel my students to be driven in their own learning! I believe in building educated, self sufficient, diverse, humans with good character! I only get one school year to instill in my students the drive towards success and the establishment of good character! I am a firm believer that parents and guardians are the ultimate teacher of my students! I hope to earn the respect of my students and the willing cooperation of parents and guardians to ensure this year's remarkable group of students will be on the way to success! I am truly excited to be your child’s teacher for the 2018-2019 school year; please feel welcome to communicate anything with me throughout the school year that has to do with the well being and education of your child and my student! I feel that communication is key to the success of the most valuable part of our school, "the students." I can respond to emails in a timely manner, and note that their are two Ms. Caldwell's in Catawba County, so the L after my name is vital for the confidentiality of the email; I want to ensure emails about my students come to me and not another teacher! I am thrilled for the upcoming year; we will do great things for the students!!!
