Reflection For year 2014- 15

Alhamdulillah!! Another productive year comes to an end. We had some good days and some not so great. Some days we accomplished a lot, and some days we did the minimal work needed for the day.

Overall my goal for this year was to provide an environment that promotes student’s thinking, honesty, curiosity, questioning and allow supervised exploration. That means that all students were hopefully going to gain some knowledge during the year. All students achieved the goal set for them; each improved their knowledge of science. My data shows that all student scores improved from the pre-test to the post-test. All students improved at least by two- three points. Each question was based on a standard and therefore students likely gained more knowledge on the standards through this year.

My main strengths through this year were that I used a variety of methods and techniques to present the material to the students. I tried to use as many outlets to teach the material as possible. I used visual aids, hands on, and student connection to the topic. I also tried to make the material as relevant as possible to students.

  • The major achievement for this year was our students participating in regional science fair at Durham.And our 7th grader Imaan Siddiqi winning first place at regional science fair.
  • Induction for our new NJHS members, Yasmin Boufedji our president of NJHS did a wonderful job of planning and making it a great success.
  • Visiting Raleigh rescue mission and donating food and other materials to the needy.The students got to see the condition of people/children living there and reflecting on all the the luxuries Allah (SWT) has blessed them with.

Alhamdulillah, for another great year.

Expectations For 2015- 16.

To keep the classroom running smooth and safe we have some expectations form our students.

  1. Walk in the classroom quietly
  2. Come prepared. (HW, Pen, notebook)
  3. Listen when the teacher is speaking.
  4. Follow directions.
  5. Be respectful to your teacher, students and school property.
  6. Be safe.
