My Students

I teach in a grade one through three building in an urban school district. Many of my students are being raised in single-parent households, and 85% are eligible for a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical."

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me.

I may not be able to control their home life; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.

My Project

We are celebrating a week long "Camp Learn A Lot" in May and hope to provide camping themed books as prizes for great reading. Students will be encouraged to read as many minutes as they can and we want to fire them up to do their best!

The kids will get a kick out of reading camp stories by "starlight lantern" as they sit by the "campfires".

These props and books will be so much fun as we have 'Smore" fun than we can handle while increasing reading fluency and comprehension skills.

Students will have the books to read forever.
