Ms. JoAnne Klein
My goal for Fast-Paced Language Arts is to help students who are gifted and highly able to have a year of growth (not just a year of A’s) in a year of school. Our FPLA curriculum includes developing reading skills with challenging, above-grade-level text, writing and speaking clearly and precisely about increasingly complex ideas, exploring our own and other cultures, and understanding the way our language works.
I facilitate a classroom where each student can learn to take responsibility, and we all contribute to the learning. I work to grow a supportive community where every member is valued. In that supportive context, I hope each student will have opportunities to work through and learn from challenges and mistakes.
I am very grateful for the continuing supportive involvement of parents and especially for the joyful opportunity to come alongside students as they grow out of childhood to the brink of young adulthood.
