Each Friday on the pages of the Tribune and online at grandhaventribune.com, we will highlight a Classroom of the Week.

This feature sheds light on the work students and teachers are doing, and it lets the community know what makes each class special.

Here’s more about this week’s featured classroom:

Teacher’s name: Brenda Penland

Number of students: 22 students

School: Peach Plains Elementary

Grade: Second

What makes your classroom special? Our classroom is special because we practice perseverance. When a student states they can't do something, the response is "Yet, but you will."

What is your classroom motto? The Golden Rule: Treat others the way you would like to be treated.

What is your classroom the most proud of? All of the students help others and care about their classmates.

Fun Fact about your classroom: We like to act out parts of stories to boost confidence and expression. This usually ends up with a room full of smiles and laughter.

What would you like the community to know? As the state continues to raise the academic bar of standards and expectations, the teachers are also raising the bar and students are succeeding!

Classroom of the Week is sponsored by Little Smiles and Smile Orthodontics.
