My Students

My second graders enter my classroom full of energy and excitement! They are vibrant, gifted learners in a public inner-city school district with limited resources. We lack the tools to match the unsurpassed enthusiasm students and families have for learning.

Our inner-city school does not have the extra budget for engaging materials.

Day in and day out, my students come ready to learn! I am constantly designing lessons and plans that meet the school's goals and students' interests.

My Project

Books are an amazing and necessary source of excitement and knowledge! I take pride in my classroom library by constantly stocking it with new books that are diverse and relevant.

Students demand more and more reading time during Reader's Workshop!

Students "shop" for books in our classroom library on a weekly basis and are thrilled to see new books to add to their bin. New books make students feel valued! At the beginning of the school year, I get to know their interest as well as make recommendations to help shape their reading life! There is nothing more important than having a well-stocked classroom library!
