My Students

In my classroom of fifth graders, we are such an exciting group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals. My students are working on skills to improve their reading, writing, and mastering math facts, while some of their classmates are learning the rules of Order of Operation, volume, and the differences between the informational writing strategies. Together, we are tackling how to use drawings and models to make sense of fractions and researching different exciting topics.

Our classroom, is a place where we, “Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy”, as Miss Frizzle says in The Magic School Bus series.

I create a culture that all students know I believe in them, no exceptions, no excuses and more importantly, they believe in themselves.

We are part of a smaller school district that celebrates inclusion. I teach in school with just fourth and fifth graders. My classroom is about becoming the best you, helping one another, and doing our best always. We work hard, we work together, and we have fun.

My Project

These books will help supply books for my classroom library. I want to make these topics accessible to my students, and not just on an iPad.

I'm so excited to share the new ELA curriculum with my students.

We get to use Max Axiom, a graphic novel, to explore and understand photosynthesis. The students will be able to see the words and read the Gettysburg Address. Within our new curriculum we have exciting unit topics to explore. We get to dive into Mesoamerican Civilizations, European Exploration and Trade, Renaissance and Reformation, Westward Expansion, Civil War, Native American Cultures, US Geography, Classifying Living Things, Cells, The Human Body, Matter and Changes, and Scientists Biographies.

Please help me put books into my students' hands.
