My Students

My students are creative, enthusiastic, and animated learners. They are eager to grow as readers, writers, mathematicians, and scholars. Beyond these wonderful attributes, each one of my students brings a unique story and set of experiences to our classroom.

We live out one of our school's values, 'Diversity As Our Strength,' every day.

Our families come from an incredible variety of countries including Bhutan, Mexico, the Philippines, Guatemala, Thailand, China, Honduras, El Salvador, and Afghanistan. Our families, school, and neighborhood are deeply connected to create a community full of hope, support, and love.

My Project

For an upcoming reading unit, we will be reading the book The Hope Chest by Karen Schwabach. In order for all students to access this text, we need a class set of this book.

In this unit, students will need to read this book with the class at school, in groups of their peers, and independently at school and at home.

In order to do this, they each need their own copy of the book.

This book covers topics including women's suffrage and voting rights, which directly aligns with the year ahead. Students are always the most engaged in their reading when they have their own copy of a text, so this project is integral to my students' success in this unit.
