SOLE Resources

SOLEs (Self Organized Learning Environments) are a core element of classroom success with my second and third grade students. Here, you’ll find links to online resources I recommend, focusing on science, social studies and kid-friendly search engines used in my classroom.

Dora Bechtel is a second-grade teacher at Campus International School and was part of the school’s inaugural teaching staff when it opened in 2010. This is her 15th year teaching in Cleveland. Dora received her bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education along with her master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a reading endorsement from Cleveland State University. She also obtained the level of Master Teacher from the State of Ohio. When she is not teaching her beloved second graders, Dora teaches college students at Cleveland State University, where she is a part-time instructor in the Department of Teacher Education. Along with teaching, Dora loves being active with her husband and 2 daughters.
