My Students

We are a class of 36 fifth graders starting off an exciting year of growth and challenges! I have been lucky enough to teach at a small, amazing, title one school where I am the only full fifth grade teacher. My students are a wonderful group who each have their own unique strengths and challenges. They are passionate about learning, and have a love for working hard. In our classroom, each and every student is a part of our family and community. Because of our school size, it has given us the opportunity to build such great relationships over the years. With a full, huge class comes so many different needs and strategies with each student, and I am looking forward to helping them reach their fullest abilities! With Distance Learning comes new opportunities to get creative. I am hoping to bring new things to the virtual classroom that will help my students thrive!

My Project

By adding class sets of books, I will be able to keep my students from going technology crazy and keep their minds learning while reading! Students will be spending half of their day learning online, whether it be through zoom or google classroom, and I am hoping to add some old school paperback books to break up their day and keep their minds going strong. I will be using novels to teach various language arts strategies that go beyond our textbooks, whether it be from home or when we return to the classroom. I will be incorporating some amazing titles, like Holes, Bridge to Terabithia, Hatchet, and The One and Only Ivan to keep my students engaged and excited about their learning.

Help us stay motivated, engaged, and give our minds a break from technology!
