My Students

I teach 26 dynamic second and third graders in a small, Title I public school in Northern California. My students come from diverse cultural backgrounds and family situations; yet, we come together as a class. My students each have their own learning struggles and strengths; yet, each child's individual needs must be met in our second grade‚Äč classroom.

Each student learns differently; yet, each child has to master second and third grade Common Core standards.

As their teacher, I must find different ways to help each child meet those standards, in two different grade levels!

My Project

Not all students feel "normal" in their own skin or might not even know what that is. Likewise, not all families have two different sex parents. Some kids, even young ones, question who they are or if their family is okay.

It's important that ALL students meet characters that they can relate to, regardless of gender or gender identification.

I want students in second through fifth grade, in class and in our Prism Club, to have books that promote learning and discussion.

We need books that are inclusive of all students and promote learning about others who may not be exactly like us.
