My Students

My students come from diverse backgrounds and have a deep concern for the well-being of others! They are constantly observing the emotions of the classmates around them and trying to encourage those who seem down. They know how to reach out with kind words and hugs. They are also thoughtful artists and wordsmiths, writing thoughtful notes or sketching funny drawings to cheer each other up! They are craving other ways to express their love and care, and I want to feed that fire as fast as possible!

My Project

Our new Superintendent has challenged teachers to create a “book-rich” environment in every classroom. Book access is a significant factor in literacy development. Research shows that students in classrooms with high-quality classroom libraries read 50 percent more than students who do not have access to a library in the classroom. Teachers are encouraged to be “choosy” about the books in a classroom library and to avoid purchasing every outdated and dog-eared book from yard sales. Students need to get excited about the books in the classroom library. Having a high-quality classroom library would allow me to present and display books in enticing ways that encourage and prompt interest, dialogue, and thinking. With a growing classroom library, the buzz about books in our classroom will bloom!
