My Students

My students are the best. The best of the best. The best of the best of the best and they deserve the best! I have 25 of the smartest, kindest, heartwarming students out there.

The students in my classroom are eager to learn and should have all opportunities at their fingertips.

My students are special because they are each unique!

My students come from many diverse backgrounds, countries, cultures, and families. I have students that are from all socioeconomic backgrounds, speaking many different languages, and have hearts made of gold.

My Project

Books teach us so much and lead us to new worlds and on new adventures. A lot of my students will not have worldly opportunities that other children grow up with. These books will be used in the classroom for silent reading, group book projects, and homework assignments. They will be used individually, in groups, with the teacher and independently. These books can go home!

Books allow students to take their imaginations around the globe and in all time periods.

These books will take them to new places and give them knowledge on things in the past, present, and future.
