Ms. Rhonda James

MY NAME IS RHONDA JAMES AND I AM THRILLED TO BE TEACHING 1st GRADE FOR A SECOND YEAR AT CANYON SPRINGS.  I AM MOTHER TO MY THREE AMAZING CHILDREN AND 2 SWEET CATS.

AFTER MANY YEARS SPENT WORKING ON THE SIDELINES IN EDUCATION, I SUCCESSFULLY EARNED MY CALIFORNIA MULTIPLE SUBJECT  TEACHING CREDENTIAL AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LAVERNE.  I THEN TAUGHT 4TH GRADE FOR 3 YEARS BEFORE ENTERING THE WORLD OF PRIMARY! MY HOBBIES INCLUDE TRAVEL, MOVIES, AND LONG WALKS. I AM HONORED TO BE TEACHING YOUR CHILD AT SUCH A  WONDERFUL, INNOVATIVE SCHOOL WITH THIS AMAZING GROUP OF COLLEAGUES.

​IT IS MY BELIEF THAT EVERY CHILD IS A UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL WHO DESERVES A SECURE, MOTIVATING, AND STIMULATING ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH TO LEARN.  AS AN EDUCATOR, IT IS MY DUTY AND DESIRE TO HELP MY STUDENTS REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL BY PROVIDING AN ATMOSPHERE THAT SUPPORTS ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE,  SELF DISCOVERY, AND SHARED LEARNING EXPERIENCES.  I BELIEVE THAT IN ORDER FOR STUDENTS TO BUILD A STRONG ACADEMIC FOUNDATION,  THEY NEED OPPORTUNITIES TO DISCOVER AND PARTICIPATE IN THEIR OWN EDUCATION.  

PROVIDING STUDENTS WITH VALUABLE, MEANINGFUL, AND RELEVANT CONTENT  IS ALSO PARAMOUNT . THIS NOT ONLY  SUPPORTS THE COMMON CORE, IT INCREASES MOTIVATION AND STIMULATES THEIR PASSION TO LEARN. DEVELOPING A STYLE THAT IS TIED TO STUDENTS' INTERESTS, AND PROMOTES CRITICAL THINKING , IS MY OPTIMAL GOAL. ​
