My Students

Each year a new group full of fabulous first graders enter my door. My job is to provide them with the educational, emotional, and social tools to help them reach their full potential.

First graders come to school each day brimming with excitement and ready to learn.

Their enthusiasm is contagious and make each day fun. Each of my students is different and unique. They develop at different rates and in different ways. They are active, social, and love to explore.

My students thrive on praise and encouragement. I work hard each day to deliver specially designed instruction to accommodate students with a wide range of learning styles and needs.

My Project

It is so important for students to learn about diversity and appreciate that everyone is special in their own way. Our world is made up of many people who belong to different racial, cultural, and ethnic groups. When my students interact with others, it is vital that they understand that we all come from different backgrounds, and understanding those backgrounds will help us build relationships.

My students need read aloud books which celebrate different cultures, races, and ethnic groups.

When students are exposed to others and learn about how we are all different, they are better able to develop kindness and empathy. I also am fortunate enough to have students from various cultures and ethnic groups, and I would love to be able to have more read alouds where they are able to see people that look just like them.

I am educating the future leaders of our country and they need the opportunity to learn all about the people that make up our beautiful world.
