Welcome to the BMS 2017-2018 School year.
My name is Stefanie Keller, and I am very excited for another year as a Brabham Bobkat education! This is my sixth year in teaching, and every year is special and different! I have my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Sam Houston State University. I am certified EC-4 in General Education and EC-12 in Special Education.
This year I will have a dual role within the school, both as a LIDS teach and a Specialized Instruction (SI) teacher. I look forward to working in smaller groups with students in order to help them achieve and exceed their goals, and to help them move along through the school year. I love working with all kids, and anticipate a fabulous school year!
For LIDS this year, I will be working closely with Yolanda Nephew, the other LIDS teacher on campus, and our classes with have a lot of collaboration. Learning will be fun, productive, and full of excitement!
For SI, I will be teaching Math and ELA for 6th, 7th and 8th graders. The small group setting of the class will allow me to work closely with all of my students, and to really help them improve their skills in these areas. I will be working closely with the Math and ELA departments here at BMS in order to help students keep pace with their peers.
Please do not hesitate to call or email with any questions about your child or what we are doing in class!

WEEK AT A GLANCE:
(For LIDS, please see Yolanda Nephew's web page)
SI ELAR -
During this week, we will spend some time getting to know each other. I will take some writing samples from our students in order to do some assessing of abilities, and to help me, as their teacher, figure out how I can best help them. In addition, we will work on some basic reading comprehension activities. No homework will be sent home this week.
SI Math -
During this week, we will spend some time getting to know each other. I will take several pre-assessments from the students in order to do some assessing of abilities, and to help me, as a teacher, figure out how I can best help them. We will work on basic strategies to help during computations, including using a calculator, hundreds chart, and multiplication chart. Students will be able to take charge of their learning, working closely with each other and me. No homework will be sent home this week.
