My Students

I will be starting off my 4th year of teaching this August. This year I am again teaching 2nd graders! After three years of teaching, I have realized the importance of children of any age learning about respect, empathy, compassion, and a positive growth mindset.

My children love to read and listen to reading.

They are caring, kind, and considerate. Having a positive attitude is an important trait to carry on throughout life. With a growth mindset, kids will accomplish great things!

My Project

These books will not only make a difference in my students' learning, but they will help guide them on the path of success throughout their lives.

My students will learn to believe in the Power of Yet!

Students will understand that just because they cannot do something now, or they are not good at something now, they can change their mindset and realize they just can't "yet".

Several of the books my class will receive, focus on how to change your mindset from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset. Students will learn to encourage one another and build each other up.
