My Students

My students are fantastic. In fact, they are so inspiring, that I am going to teach 4th grade, for the first time, so I can loop with them. Their kindness and creativity make teaching rewarding. I am proud of each of them on a daily basis. My students love reading and science the most, and these two things are continuous expenses. The love of learning these students have is contagious. The students value independent reading as well as content reading in groups.

My Project

This group of students were in my class for third grade. They are such wonderful students that I have decided to teach fourth grade and continue teaching them. They are a creative and inspiring group of children. Because there is a love of reading fostered in this classroom, the books on the shelf have been read and read. I have created this project, so that we can expand our class library, not only for grade level literature, but also those reading above grade level. In addition to this project, I have also created a project that will increase our class library with science and math topics. Please check it out also. Thank you in advance!
