Ms. Alexandra (Ali) Chapman
Hello everyone! My name is Ms. Chapman, welcome to my class - whether it is Junior or Freshman English! I look forward to working with all of my students and helping them to achieve their goals this year at Eagle High School.
I am new to both Eagle High School and Idaho, as I moved here recently from the Portland, Oregon area. This is my sixth year of teaching, I taught at a university overseas for two years and then at the Secondary levels for three years in Portland. It is my belief that real learning happens when the student is involved, thus incorportating a student-centered education and making learners responsible for their knowledge.
At Eagle some teachers are implementing a new system of grading this year called Standards-Based Grading. We hope this will help our students succeed in the classroom and give more opportunites for student-centered learning. If you would like to know more feel free to check out this article on the benefits of Standards-Based Grading.
Please do not hesitate to contact me.
