Hi, my name is Dorothy Freckleton. Happy to be a second grade Teacher at Oakcliff Elementary School. 







Educational Philosophy


I believe that every child has the ability to learn. It is my responsibility to design long and short term educational goals so that the students I teach will learn. Teachers must be diagnosticians to plan for differentiation and modes of learning. Teachers must be educational evaluators. Teachers must put into place tools to ensure and enhance the learning process. I believe that I can change a child’s outlook on life therefore I will instill in my students that learning doesn’t stop in the classroom. I believe that education and learning extend far beyond the walls of the school and into the everyday lives of children at home. Therefore, I will instill in my students the desire to take learning beyond the four walls of the classroom. I will provide them with the tools they will need to be lifelong learners. It is my job as an educator to provide meaningful learning activities that will change their outlook on life.








“The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives” ~ Robert M. Hutchins

How to grow bean sprouts
Step 1. Rinse the beans in the water about two times. (look through if there is any broken beans and pick it out. Dark or splited or chopped beans won't sprout and end up getting rotted and ruin other good beans while growing)

Step 2. Soak the beans in the water for 24 hours. ( 1/4cups of beans and 1cup of water will be enough)

Step 3. Remove the beans from the water and put beans in the container that has little holes for the draining of the water.

Step 4. Cover over the container with towel.

Step 5. Put some lid over the towel. (do not perfectly cover it so air can get through)

Step 6. Water them twice or once a day.
