My Students

Curious, creative, and clever---these are a few words to describe my fourth-grade students. My students come from diverse cultures and backgrounds and include Gifted and Talented Students, English language learners, and students with special needs. They are all unique in their own way which is what makes our school community an inviting and accepting place for all. My students are thriving in fourth grade!

My Project

As an educator, I aim to connect with my students as we begin to form relationships from day one. At the start of the school year, we start to build our community and bridge individuals to make connections through stories we share and books we read. I respect each child for who they are and want my fourth graders to feel visible and valued. This work begins around our identity and affirmation of who we are. I aim to recognize and value my students' identities, as well as help shine a light on who they are and who they may become.

I want all of my students to see themselves as readers and see themselves reflected in the books they read as they nourish their need to read!

What better way to do this than through books! Books with diverse characters can encourage my students to affirm and value their own identities as well as those of others. As readers, they identify with the characters they meet in the books they read which is why an inclusive library is so crucial! Books can be windows for my readers to see through to the outside world as well as a reflection of their own identity. As an educator, I want to give my readers the opportunity to see themselves in the books they read as we build an inclusive learning community and classroom library.
