My Students

My students are absolutely unique in every way and they are my inspiration. Every child in my classroom has their own story to tell and they choose to write their own stories everyday in my classroom . These beautiful students are the reason I am a successful teacher. Joy is on their faces everyday because they cannot wait to see what story we will encounter today.

"Behind every student's smile is their capability to see all their dreams come true." Gorman

My Project

I love implementing creativity with English. I have my students do a book study every six weeks which entails a book report and fun creative projects. The students get to pick which genre they want to read and begin their journey of stepping into a world full of adventure and even life lessons. They bring in some amazing projects that just lights up my whole world.

However, I am running out of my own markers, color pencils, and I have no place to put their projects except on the floor in my room.

I want to be able to show case their hard work in book shelves that will honor the students success and bring pride into their work. My students' work is so amazing and I would love to show them how much I love their work.
