My Students

I love living and teaching in our small town. I am now teaching the children of some of my former students. It is fun to see how my students have grown and have become successful adults.

Our school is a family.

We treasure each family represented at our school. We have a large percentage of ESL families at our school. We work hard to foster a positive home-school connection with all families. We celebrate each other's successes and offer encouragement when someone is struggling. We care about each student who attends our school as well as those who have attended in past years.

My Project

Last year, we administered a kindergarten assessment to our students at the beginning of the year. One question we asked was, "Who reads with you or to you at home?" Another question was, "Tell me about your favorite book." Their answers were as varied as their personalities. Some of the answers were heart breaking.

My goal, for all of my students in my kindergarten classroom, is that they fall in love with books.

I plan to start by giving them books of their very own! I would like to purchase student-selected books from Scholastic Reading Club. You never know which book holds the magic key that will open the world of reading to a child. By providing my students with books of their choosing, I hope each child will unlock the magic of reading!
