My Students

"Mrs. R! Guess what I did this weekend!" Those are the words that greet me every Monday morning as I usher in my 20 children. They are my children, part of my family. In our class we are a family because you never know what your classmates have to go home to.

Many students come to school looking for a home, and in my classroom they find just that.

We are a family, and we treat each other as such. It's hard because they are all so energetic and strong willed. They love to help each other and read to each other. Sometimes they argue over who gets to read with who. They try with everything they have and cry when they fail. They want the best for each other and themselves.

For whatever time I may have them, I will instill in them a love for school and for each other. Each other is all some of them have.

My Project

My classroom is made of a very diversified group of students. Often these students don't feel or realize how special they are.

Books such as "The Invisible Boy" will help students understand how others in the room might feel and encourage them to treat each other fairly and make new friends.

Books such as "She Persisted" will encourage students to never give up and to keep trying to reach their goals. Students should always feel accepted and loved in the classroom. These books will help students understand each other's differences and see that everyone is unique and special. My hope is that students will learn to see that everybody is different and that is what makes them amazing.
