My Students

I'm sure this has been said and heard time and time again, but my students are "my kids." Each year is a special and unique group, but they always have one thing in common. My students need to feel loved and important.

Sure, math and reading are essential, but my biggest job is to make sure my kiddos are confident and kind leaders.

I want them to know that there are people out in this world rooting for them. I hope my classroom is a place of fun, comfort and lots of rich experiences.

My kiddos come from great families, but families that work and work just to make ends meet. The majority of my students have a life where they "get what they need" and rarely "what they want."

With that being said, if you were able to look in my classroom, you are going to see fresh smiles every morning. You will see kiddos that love life and are eager to learn...unless it is Monday morning writing, AHHH. Only kidding, kinda.

Just know, if you choose us, you are supporting a beyond wonderful group of 4th graders.

My Project

The majority of my projects are to help grow our very valued, classroom library. My students and I consider our books our classroom's most prized possessions. This is a another project to help build the library of our dreams.

My students and I spend countless hours laughing, crying, learning, and connecting with our books.

Books are not only great for leaning, but a great escape from the real world. We connect with characters and learn life lessons to help us when we are zapped back to reality. Books are good for the soul, and we will be delighted to add these great text to our collection.
