In my Title I third grade classroom, I work with my students to establish a positive learning community in which we All support and learn from one another, as a family. The environment of the classroom is essential to our learning community and offers many opportunities for collaboration and creativity. Reading and writing go hand in hand. If the student is a strong reader, they are a strong writer. This can only lead to the students becoming successful scholars. A scholar is a lifelong learner.
They are creative, each differently. They love to read and they love to celebrate any accomplishments. Many of the students I teach are being raised in single parent homes and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These are statistics that typically keep children with these difficulties from reaching their full potential. It is my passion as their teacher to help them see this potential and reach beyond their goals we set together while they are with me. While their home lives may not always be what I desire for them, I can do everything in my power to make the atmosphere in my Classroom all they need to flourish.
With a leveled classroom library, I am ready to inspire my students in a creative and positive way.
