Our classroom is the center of learning for our diverse population. My students spend more time at school than they do with their own families and I want to continue to serve them.
I teach in a diverse, urban community that serves students from various socioeconomic backgrounds and with a wide range of learning styles.
My students are creative, clever, and humorous! They like to move, they enjoy reading, working in cooperative learning groups, and they thrive on positive attention. Despite personal hardships, my students come to school every day with a positive attitude. From the moment they walk through the door, we focus on their potential and growth. I strive to create an engaging learning environment to keep my students on the path of academic excellence.
I have a variety of reading levels in my 2 fifth grade ELA classes. I have a time set aside each day for a whole class read aloud. The very first book I read was "Swindle" by Gordon Korman. Before I knew it, the school library could not keep the other books in this series on the shelf. My students were constantly checking them out because they fell in love with the characters. I have put the Swindle series on my donation list as well as some modern releases that have the timeless quality of classics. The book series selected have proven to really engage student attention and interest to want and love to read.
Your donation will allow many students access to stories and characters they will fall in love with and promote their love of reading.
Becoming a good reader is the most important part of becoming a successful student and adult in the future.
