My Students

Inspiring a love of reading, and instilling a desire for lifelong learning is my number one goal as a reading teacher. With so many distractions that surround children these days it is important to present books in a way that spark an even bigger excitement for reading. This is what I plan to do for the students that enter my classroom each and every day.

"Today a reader, tomorrow a leader" - Margaret Fuller.

I am not just educating children. I am molding tomorrow's leaders. In order to do that more effectively I need your help. I am a fourth grade reading teacher at an elementary school in Nashville, Tennessee. I teach two different reading classes each day. The school I teach at receives Title I funding, and serves many English Language Learners. The majority of students at my school qualify for free breakfast and lunch.

My Project

Students will embark on educational lessons focused on the theme of entrepreneurship. This theme branches from my school's focus of STEAM magnet education.

"The best way to predict the future is to create it".

With the use of the materials listed students will learn what it means to be an entrepreneur. Students will learn how to begin the entrepreneurial process through the examples listed in the books. These stories contain many examples of how kids can be entrepreneurs. Students will explore this topic through the books listed. They will then use the supplies listed to plan their own entrepreneurial endeavor.
