Hi there and welcome to 6th grade English Language Arts!
My name is Helen Aboke and this is my 12th year teaching 6th grade here in Pittsburg. Sixth grade is an exciting time as scholars embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which the acquisition of new skills is accelerated.
My educational philosophy is that our scholars are the future leaders of our world. I see myself as having a large impact on their future development and growth. My philosophy affects my attitude, influences my decisions, and directs my interactions with others.
I believe that all scholars are capable of academic achievement if given the proper attention and source of inspiration. I believe that each scholar is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature. It is my desire as an educator to help scholars meet their fullest potential by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. Maintaining each scholar’s self esteem and building a secure foundation for growth will always remain a priority in our classroom.
My hope is to make your child’s learning experience a fun and exciting one, and to instill a love of learning that will last throughout their years of schooling and adulthood. Please feel free to contact me via email with questions and/or concerns. Also, text 81010 to @abokeela to join my Remind.
Here's to making this a year of inspiration and success!
