A-LIST Spotlight--Jamie Zimmer, Kettering Middle School

We are excited to feature A-LIST member Jamie Zimmer from Kettering Middle School on today's A-LIST Spotlight!

Upon entering Jamie's middle school classroom, it is evident that she has a knack for organization and is able to provide structure in a stylish way which we know is important for middle school!

Jamie uses the evidence-based practice of Visual Supports when organizing and structuring her space. 

She has a homebase area clearly defined by a calming sheer blue curtain. 

She uses visual picture icons for her adorable job board. 

And has these great framed mini-schedules for each period of the school day so students know what will be accomplished during each time of day. She even uses dry erase markers to cartoon visual reminders as well.

Jamie also uses Ellison cut outs to label and organize her structured work systems to make it easier for students to locate their needed work.

We also love how Jamie uses visual supports for organizing material prep for her staff.

A BIG thank you to Jamie for welcoming us into her classroom so we could share all of these wonderful supports! Thank you for being a valued member of our A-LIST!
