Choice Serves at MMA/SHCDC

Every year Choice Schools Associates, our management company, has a service day for one of their schools. This year they came out to help MMA & Second Home get our school ready for the 2019/2020 school year! We all worked hard washing walls, painting bathrooms, cleaning and reorganizing classrooms and supply closets, weeding, planting and mulching our gardens. It was an incredible day filled with hard work, partnership, and fun! We are so thankful for the help we received from Choice Schools, and we are ready for our students to come back this fall!

I wanted to teach at a school where students work at their own pace and their own level. It is important for me to teach students in small groups or individually. MMA allowed me to teach the way I wanted to teach.   How do you build a family-like [...]

Teacher Spotlight: Chevon Chenault-Starnes

What grade do you teach and how long have you been teaching at MMA? I teach grades 1 & 2. I have been teaching at MMA for three years and am excited to head into my 4th year! What made you choose to teach at MMA? MMA is very special! From my first time in the building, I immediately felt that the staff loved the students and that they were there to make a difference. I wanted to be a part of that. In what ways do you build a family-like atmosphere in your classroom? The students in my classroom, for the most part, have been with me and each other for the last three years. We have all learned to love and respect one another. We all help take care of our environment by cleaning and organizing it daily. The best part is that we make up chants for one another when a task, such as reading all of their sight words or completing a Montessori work plan, is completed. We do this so that students can feel accomplished and their classmates are helping them succeed. What's your secret ingredient in your classroom? What techniques do you use that [...]
