My Students

At our school, we specialize in project-based learning and experiential education. Our students are eager to learn and ready to take on challenges. Students do a substantial amount of research and create many projects. We encourage each student to be the architect of his or her own education and to become lifelong learners.

I teach at the middle school level, and I love watching my students learn.

We're studying American History this year and we'll be exploring many great leaders from the past. Students come from many backgrounds, but they work together to learn and grow.

My Project

In the digital age, reading is as important as ever. Introducing students to great books and helping them gain strong reading comprehension skills is an essential part of a 21st-century education. To help spark a love of reading and learning, we are revitalizing our classroom library to include new, relevant titles that make learning come to life.

We are building a classroom library with material that makes timeless content relevant to young readers.

Our selected titles are all designed to make big ideas clear and simple, through great illustrations, masterful writing, and quality publishing.

Help us make our library a reality and help spark a love of reading in our classroom, both this year and for years to come!
