I’m lucky enough to teach every single 8th grader in the district, and what a beautiful variety of students I have. Middle school students are honest, they’re caring, they’re curious! And I feel that my classroom is a warm, safe place where students feel they can be all of those things as well as feel loved!
My students come from a variety of backgrounds and bring to my classroom a variety of experiences.
Together, we learn, grow, and become even more amazing!
My goal this upcoming school year is to create a warm, cozy place where students can get lost in their most recent independent reading book. I am working toward creating a culture and a classroom of readers in my middle school, and we all know it's much more enjoyable to read in a comfortable place.
I've procured a beautiful love seat and some lamps for warm light, but I'd like to add some inflatable chairs and a bright, welcoming area rug.
Hopefully, I can create an environment that students seek out on their own, a place where they can escape to a different world, where they can fall in love with a good book.
