My Students

The 6th-grade students are working towards improving their overall knowledge about all subject areas. They are a very strong group of learners who are always craving more. I like watching this group continue to grow and improve in all aspects of their life.

My students come from a lower socio-economic background and that can make it more difficult to pay for field trips.

They are getting great opportunities to go to many wonderful places to gain real-life​ experiences.

This group really wants to excel on the AZ Merit and so I am adding test prep materials with books to help push them to their goal of getting top scores.

My Project

These Who Was books will continue to help my kids soar in reading and learn while doing it. I want them to continue to love reading and keep pushing themselves in AR. My students are reaching their goals and I continue to set them higher as a challenge. They have talked about The Who Was books they have read all year and the knowledge and information they have gained from then. The AZ Merit test prep books will help my kids prepared for the test in April. They have a goal of scoring highly proficient on the test and these books will help them achieve that!
