About Miss Niederreither

My family

I’m a WSSD graduate, I was a Red Land Patriot! I’ve known since 1st grade that I wanted to be a teacher. I LOVE what I get to do every day. My boyfriend & I have two dogs, Macy & Ace. Macy is a husky mix from Alaska & Ace is a Border Collie. You’ll hear all about them this year! I lived in Alaska for almost two years in two small villages. You’ll hear all about that, too! I’m VERY close with my family so we do a lot together. 

 

I graduated from Kutztown University with a dual major in Elementary Ed. K-6 & Early Childhood. I taught for two years in Alaska. Then, I was a long term sub for most of the year in 5th grade at Hillside. Now, this will be my fourth year in 2nd grade here at Hillside. 

 

A few of my favorite things include:

1. My family & friends
2. My puppies!
3. Iced Coffee
4. Hobby Lobby
5. Anything outdoors
6. My favorite color is green.
7. My favorite animal is a moose.
 

Responsive Classroom

 
Our classroom will be a Responsive Classroom this year! I cannot wait to transform my classroom. 
 

What is Responsive Classroom?

Responsive Classroom is an evidence-based education approach associated with greater teacher effectiveness, higher student achievement, and improved school climate. The approach was developed by a group of public school educators who had a vision of bringing together social and academic learning throughout the school day.

Responsive Classroom approach consists of a set of practices that build academic and social-emotional skills and that can be used along with many other programs. The approach helps educators build competencies in four interrelated domains: Engaging Academics, Positive Community, Developmentally Responsive Teaching, and Effective Management.


Morning Meeting:

  1. Greeting: Students greet each other by name, often including handshaking, singing, movement, and other activities.

  2. Sharing: Students share some news or information about themselves and respond to each other, articulating their thoughts, feelings, and ideas in a positive way.

  3. Group Activity: The whole class does a short, inclusive activity together, reinforcing learning and building class cohesion through active participation.

  4. Morning Message: Students practice academic skills and warm up for the day ahead by reading and discussing a daily note to the clas posted by their teacher.


Approach to Discipline:

  • Students’ hopes and dreams guide classroom rules. How can we achieve those hopes and dreams? 

  • Logical Consequences: Loss of a privilege, take a break
