My Students

I love to hear my students respond to my cheers.

I say, "Class, class?" and my students respond, "Yes, yes!"

I say, "Hocus pocus!" and my students say, "Time to focus!"

I love to see their faces light up when they hear that and respond with a confident and strong chorus.

I am teaching 2nd grade, and love it every day with these wonderful students. Every day with them is an adventure and filled with love and understanding. I work at a Title I school where most of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Providing my students with this opportunity will increase their cognitive understanding.

My Project

My goal is to put a copy of this classic novel in the hands of every 2nd grader in my school. With this book, we will be able to promote partner reading, group reading, whole group reading, and independent reading. There is a sense of ownership and independence when you have your own book in your hands. Many of the students in this grade level will be able to read this classic novel at their own pace and fluency and allow me to pull small groups to my table to have smaller discussions with fewer distractions. Having this classic novel will bring a whole new world to many students and promote reading novels.
