My Students

I teach in a Title I school. A lot of my students come from underprivileged homes. Everyday, I do my best to provide as many resources and as much encouragement as I can. My favorite thing to do is combine learning with fun. Who says language arts has to be boring?

My favorite thing about my students is their ability to stay engaged while learning.

Everyday is an adventure of stories, learning gains, and laughter. I love supporting my students in all that they do, inside and outside of the classroom!

My Project

Every year, my students cover Anne Frank's legacy. While talking about Anne Frank and the Holocaust, we also discuss the Nazi's. In order to expand their understanding, I want to purchase a class set of "The Devil's Arithmetic". By immersing ourselves in the book, we will get to learn and experience another version of the Holocaust and World War II.

By reading this book, students will be able to put themselves in the shoes of the narrator and connect the book with the text that we read in class.

I've always believed that the best way to learn is through experiences. Reading is one way to "experience" different situations, as tough as the experience may be.
