I am honored to be a part of DVIA for season 6! Darlene, my amazing partner in crime, and I are dedicated to providing endless opportunities to grow and learn every day. In Core 3 students are working toward becoming more autonomous. Through engaging classroom projects, students will gain content knowledge about rich topics and 21st century 'soft skills'. Students read to learn, use technology daily, create safe and meaningful friendships, and gain confidence to advocate for themselves.
"DVIA exists to provide students with a rigorous, relevant, and hands-on college preparatory curriculum. We create and support a
culture of high expectations for all, where students grow in knowledge and wisdom, develop new skills, and for safe and strong
relationships with teachers, peers, parents, and community. Furthermore, DVIA exists to provide a family collaborative
instructional model that supports children to become caring, confident learners in a compassionate learning community that
respects and values different interests, abilities, learning styles, ethnicities, and cultural backgrounds."
