My Students

I have some of the greatest students in the St. Louis area. My students are so great because even though they come from all different backgrounds, they work together so well. I know that when they go home they face challenges that children should not face. I want to make sure that when they enter my classroom they have only the best learning experience. My students may have many difficulties in their lives, but getting a high quality education in my classroom will never be one.

My Project

Every week we have two reading workshop days where the students give a book talk on their favorite books. After the book talk the other students in the class really want the book that was presented. I have a few copies of some things, but some I don't have any copies of at all. The most popular books for book talks have been graphic novels this year. I have a few popular series, but I'd like to get a few more. Also, the Michael Vey series is one of my most popular series in the class. My students have begged for these titles and I would like to give them the books they want.
