My Students

I teach nine year old students at a fine arts magnet school that includes S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.) My classroom is a community that celebrates each other in our learning and social/emotional growth. We are always working to build relationships and work together to be great leaders in our school and community. They collaborate across the curriculum and love working with each other in groups.

They are engaged in learning most when it is exciting and hands on.

When we are learning hands on activities help us make concrete connections and build from that as we learning many new exciting things! My students love to learn as we bring in the fine arts and S.T.E.A.M. into our learning everyday!

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy. I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books, such as Holes, Quarterback Sample, and Swap, have been chosen with my students in mind. I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.
