Welcome grade 7 Scholars and Families!
Thank you for visiting my web page. My name is Francesca Baase. I will be your child's grade 8:1:1 teacher for the 2020-21 academic school year. I look forward to working with my families, my students, my colleagues, the administration, and various community stakeholders as we embark on another successful year!
Your child's learning this year will focus on two concepts. The first being, the Whole Child. This gives students opportunities to learn at their own pace through active engagement. This allows students to use the constructivist approach in becoming more independent learners that are self-reliant. In addition to this cognitive focus, we will also develop the human spirit through self-awareness, relationship building, empathy, and mindfullness.
The second concept of focus is the Whole Brain. This is multisensory learning or in other words learning with all the senses. Instruction will be presented visually, auditory, kenesthetic, and tactile. This creates a balance of the child's strengths and weaknesses while intergrating a learning style. This allows the child to receive a variety of stimulation and will enable students to use their own personal areas of strength to help them learn.
Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions, concerns, or suggestions you may have throughout the school year. Have a wonderful and blessed day!
