My Students

I am welcoming a wonderful group of fourth graders. As third graders, they helped to re-open our school and I can't wait to see where this year will take them.

Our school is in its second year after being reopened last year.

The students and families are happy to be part of this exciting time. My students come from a range of socioeconomic levels, backgrounds, and languages. I look forward to working with my students and families this year as we continue to create our school community.

My Project

I would love to be able to have a class set of Matilda by Roald Dahl. A class set of Matilda will allow us to read one of Roald Dahl's best works and to let students have their own copy of the book to enjoy.

I want to make sure my students have access to great reading materials in both fiction and non-fiction.

Along with Matilda, Roald Dahl wrote so many classic novels for young readers. The book set of Dahl's novels will give students more opportunities to read his work. The Newbury Award book set will allow students to read some of the best young reader novels in the fantasy genre. Time for Kids Magazine will give students access to high-interest non-fiction text while practicing comprehension skills.

Classroom supplies like privacy partitions, reusable write/wipe boards, brushes, and science curriculum allow me to have what I need in the classroom for any lesson.
