My Students

Switching it up! I’m teaching third grade this year in a low income school district with students with a wide range of abilities and different learning styles. The majority of my students speak Spanish as their main language. They come to school seeking new experiences and hands-on activities. I live within my school district and my goal is to create lifelong learners. I want to provide the best education possible for the students I share my classroom with. They deserve the very best!

My Project

My classroom is lacking in social emotional picture books! I am new to third grade and my library is in need of some help. I want to show third graders how reading can be applied to their every day lives. Picture books may share a simple story but there is always something to learn from the characters within the pages! I have sparked their interest with the few I have but there are so many books I want to share with them. I would love your help in purchasing these social emotional books. I want to share my love for reading and learning.
