My Students

Our schools strive for excellence in all things, that is why our mascot is an eagle soaring high. They are some of the most hardworking students I know. They soak up all they can learn.

Many students are in need of more experiences.

From family finical needs to overly stressed my students come to the classroom with many different needs. Although they have these challenges they take what they have and give school their all. They are filled with light and joy every day.

My Project

My project is to improve the reading materials in my students' lives. With exciting books for students to read, my students will be more motivated and excited about learning how to read.

I teach my students that reading is like reading a secret code, and when they learn the "code", they can learn anything in the world.

Having fun books for them to read is key to learning how to read.

I am so excited for my class to have exciting books that they are excited to read. This will improve their reading, writing, and future education in all aspects.
