My Students

Every child in my classroom loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best can vary greatly. My room incorporates a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating.

The various learning options are there to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are!

My students are truly incredible, and I am so thankful to have a group of 5th graders that are excited and ready to learn each school year! Thank you.

My Project

With all the present-day distractions that consume my students' focus and attention, it’s more important than ever that my students channel their energy into reading books. Everyone loves a new book and it seems that the books in our classroom need refreshing.

I want to surround our classroom with new books!

My students are always curious when things around the classroom changes. By putting a few baskets of new books on our classroom shelf and around the room, it will do just that- spark curiosity and inspire reading!

One of the easiest ways to get motivated is to read a great book.

When you read the right book, you want to get out there and conquer the world! I want this for my students.
