MIKAYLA FOSTERS CRITICAL THINKING IN HER CLASS
Mikayla co-teaches 12th grade English with Dr. Lapp and receives support from Dr. Ilko. She ensures that students are engaged and learning by checking for understanding and asking students to explain the lesson in their own words to each other. Mikayla uses break-out rooms to meet with students in small groups to help them generate ideas for their writing. Mikayla is extremely proud of all of her students, especially the meaningful discussions they have with their peers.
“I want to thank Dr. Lapp and Dr. Ilko for supporting me and providing me feedback as I continue my journey as a first year teacher. I receive the same support from them and the staff at HSHMC as I give to my students and it makes me feel connected to everyone even though I haven’t met them in person.”
