This is Ms. Charlene Manaoat’s Kindergarten class at the KIPP Miami Sunrise Academy in Liberty City. This week’s Super Teacher engages her kiddos, as she calls them, in a fun, musical, and loud reading workshop.
"Just to make it really joyful for the kids and I feel like with the singing and the chanting it's stickier for them. They're able to memorize. The kids give me energy, you have to be on 24/7 just to give them exactly what they need. I'm a very joyful person as is, and I think it shows in the classroom too", said Manaoat.
Most of her kiddos start school not knowing how to read. But she changes that quickly. It takes a lot of energy to run a class like this. So you can imagine how Ms. Manaoat finishes each day, "exhausted" she said, but in a good way.
Congratulations to Super Teacher Ms. Charlene Manaoat!
