My Students

The 6-C crew is about to begin another amazing year together. This amazing crew has looped from 5th grade together. The students have explored forces and motion, have learned bravery from Annemarie in Denmark, and have uncovered the mysterious of higher order mathematics. As we begin a new year, students will be diving into ancient civilizations, sail the seas with Charlotte Doyle, and will explore the concept of ratios and integers. This crew has traveled far, and yet they still look towards the future.

Hardworking, persevering, dedicated, and hysterical; what more could you want from a group of students.

Each day, these twenty 6th graders come in with a positive attitude and the drive to confront and overcome challenges. They have become a "crew." They are loyal to one another, will raise one another up, and will fool around with each other in a positive way. The 6-C crew is one of a kind!

My Project

Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli was a novel I read as a student and remember it having a profound effect on me. I fell in love with Stargirl and the theme of being different.

I would love to share this novel with my students for the first time and for many years to come.

This novel will be a marvelous companion to Wonder, which I tend to read either the year prior or during the same year. They both tackle important social issues that are essential for students entering middle school. Through Stargirl, students will learn the benefits and beauty of being themselves!
