My Students

My students come from a very rural community in the heart of North Carolina. My students find reading books to be entertaining and informative.

They find reading to be the device that transports them to new places, allows them to meet new characters and challenges their minds.

My students enjoy reading a variety of texts and applying lessons learned to real life scenarios. My students take pride in their education and arrive each day with a deep desire to learn and create!

My Project

New books for our classroom library will allow students to gain new experiences as well as increase their vocabulary and overall reading skills as they excitedly delve into age appropriate texts. Not only will students be able to explore these new texts independently, but they will also get to use them in a group setting to learn valuable lessons and deepen comprehension and critical thinking skills. Students will also analyze the major problem within the stories and then engineer solutions to solve the problem and "help the characters." New books will help me continue to challenge and grow my students' minds as they learn and problem solve.
