My Students

"The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create the possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create men who are capable of doing new things." –Jean Piaget

My students are so amazingly talented and curious.

They are constantly looking for the next big idea and looking for things to invent. They want to learn about the world around them and to explore the past.

I love to watch as they discover new things and learn new concepts. They are so proud of themselves when they do! The best part is when they know a concept well enough to become the teacher and coach a fellow student through a tough problem.

I have such a diverse age range that uses my class room (K-4th grade) and I love seeing them blossom and grow as they discover new facts and ideas in books.

My Project

Exposing my students to different stories and adventures allows them to continue to grow their imaginations. At the same time, they are learning new vocabulary, empathy, caring, and ideas while walking a mile in the characters' shoes. The different reading levels in my classroom means that I have to keep many different levels of books available to my students.

As we say, "The More You Know, The Better You Can Imagine." I know that I am teaching students that will be working in industries that have not even been imagined yet.

It is important to give my students a firm foundation of stories to build our futures on. These Furinno bookshelves will hold all of the wonderful books we have and will be getting as we grow our classroom library. I know they will be perfect!
