My Students

My students are eager leaners! Nothing excites them as much as a game, an activity, or a project.

My students are a very enthusiastic and diverse group of sixth graders.

They come from all over our city from many different elementary schools. They love to talk and write and get involved in different kinds of activities.

Many of my students have special needs, are still learning English, or are concrete and tactile learners. Game play is an exciting avenue for content introduction.

My Project

My students have a great love of reading, but we need to push ourselves into more complex thinking around literary themes and characters. One superb way to move towards this goal will be to have them participate in scaffolded book clubs.

Research supports having students read as much as possible.

This gift will make that happen. I have visions of my students using literature to not only learn how to analyze characters and other elements of fiction but also to build their love of reading and stories.

Well-loved literature has immense potential and value for students all over the world. I want to give that to my students.
