Charles Medved, Kindergarten
 
Hello, my name is Charles Medved, and I'm a new addition to the Coleman community.
 I am originally a native of Southern California, growing up in a comfortable suburb
near San Diego called Poway. I am a college graduate of SDSU and CSUSM.  
Throughout my life, I have enjoyed the experience with working with children of all ages,
and am now especially excited to be teaching Kindergarten.
Last year, I taught at Davidson Middle School as a 6th grade Special Education teacher,
and I have also been a student-teacher in Kindergarten, 5th grade,
6th grade, and high school.  My favorite hobbies and activities include music,
yoga, meditation, and rock climbing.

Common Core

The Common Core standards clearly communicate what is expected of students at each grade level. Common Core is a real-world approach to learning and teaching, developed by education experts from 45 states; these K-12 learning standards go deeper into key concepts in math and English language arts. The standards require a practical, real-life application of knowledge that prepares students for success in college, work and life.

Common Core provides:
  • Consistent learning expectations for all students.
  • Clear standards that focus on understanding over memorization.
  • Emphasis on the critical topics students need to succeed after high school.
  • Faster testing results with a better, more focused online assessment system.
