My Students

This is my second year with a wonderful group of students at our elementary school in Lufkin, a town in the heart of East Texas. These kids have seen amazing success and growth in Reading/Language Arts in the two years I have taught them. Many are reading at below grade level, but have seen unbelievable gains in reading stamina and comprehension, especially in their 5th grade year.

While many of them claim to dislike books and reading, they are beginning to grow into themselves and into the role of initiating their own learning.

One of our shared goals this year is to find something to love about reading, whether it's informational books about topics you care about, fiction stories that take you into the depths of your imagination, or how-to books that teach you more about fascinating projects. There are books out there for everyone, and it is my goal as their educator to place engaging books in their hands and show them that they CAN love reading.

My Project

This class set of novels will offer my students the opportunity to read a book together as a class, uniting us as we explore the novel's themes and the experiences of the characters we will be reading about. This will also give us the opportunity to have class conversations about those themes and relationships, while also improving reading stamina, comprehension and understanding of the concepts we have learned throughout the year so far.

My goal is to create a shared learning experience that I hope my students will remember as they leave elementary school.

Thank you for considering our class!
