My Students

During this global pandemic, when teachers are torn from their students and classrooms, providing stability to students is key, especially when school for so many of my students is the stability they need. I strive to provide all students with a quality education that will provide them with the skills they need to succeed not only in school but in the workforce as well. My students work hard and make great strides each year in school, and they keep pushing forward. They strive to better themselves educationally because they know that their education will help them become more productive members of their communities.

The students who enter my classroom each year work hard to be the leaders of our school and exemplify what it means to be a student, learner, and child.

We work to not only grow our minds but also our personalities and friendships. As we continue to grow our brains, we must continue to grow our hearts and the world we live in. We research and develop our understanding of the world we live in, and how it was influenced by

My Project

I am hoping to provide my students with an online line novel study unit using a novel that reflects who they are and some of their experiences. With the chart paper, easel and markers, I will be able to provide online lessons as well as record my lessons for students who can not meet during class time.

For many of my students, the classroom is their stability and structure, and to have that taken away is a real struggle for them and their families.

Being able to provide the lessons and keep the structure of the classroom similar and the learning strong is key to continuing to close the learning gap.
