My Students

My students live in a small, rural community in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Many of my students have known each other since Preschool (Young-4's). This school year we have grown! It's very exciting to have some new faces in the hallway and in the classrooms.

Our students are kind, hard-working, and have a desire for learning.

Every student strives to have Wolf P.R.I.D.E. - Positive, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Encouragement. These students deserve every opportunity to learn with newer and relevant classroom materials.

My Project

Thank you for coming to my page. My students are in need of two novels: Out of the Dust and The Secret Life of Bees. We are currently in a unit that is discussing overcoming adversity, and my students need more texts to build their own opinions on our overarching question: "How do people decide when to stand up for themselves or others?"

Students will be reading both Out of the Dust and The Secret Life of Bees alongside Esperanza Rising.

They will be participating in Literature Circles, classroom discussions, as well as writing essays. Please consider donating to this project.
