My Students

My students mean the world to me. They are why I chose this profession. I wanted to make a difference as well as be a light to help guide them through their education journey no matter what circumstances they may be in or hardships they may endure. Although I teach math, reading, and writing my kids know that my main teaching goal for them is to learn how to be good people. I want them to love others, be kind/ genuine, and make the right decisions in life because without those skills a good education doesn’t matter.

My Project

My main goal is to give my students a wide variety of different books to choose from that not only encourages but excites them to read. Most classroom is very diverse which is why I want my library to consist of books that have characters from different races, cultures, and places so that my students will find books that they can relate to and connect with the characters in some way. My students are such a blessing to me and I want them to have the very best including a classroom that represents each and every single one of them.
