My Students

Even though this is my first year teaching, I have quickly become so attached to my students. This year, I have two 7th grade classes and two 8th grade classes and each class has a vibrant, bubbly personality of their own!

I am honored to teach a group of brilliant, energetic, and college driven scholars!

All of my students come to school each day willing and ready to learn! I believe in lifelong learning and I am truly learning from my students every day.

My Project

I am looking to begin a classroom library for my middle school students. These scholars need and deserve the opportunity to read great books! As a writing teacher, I am always looking to inspire my students and get them excited to write! What better antidote to writer's block than a beautiful library of diverse books?

My students truly are my inspiration and I would love nothing more than to give back to them.

Most of the books chosen are all books I've read myself when I was their age. With this library, I am hoping to encourage all of my students to write about what they read!
