My Students

I am fortunate to teach at a small, community-centered school. My students are inquisitive learners with a healthy appetite for books. They love to become immersed in a good story and let their imaginations carry them to far away places. You can see a spark light behind their eyes as we learn how to use books as research materials when we write our first informational report. It opens their minds to how much there is to discover and learn about in the world. Last year, each student wrote a page to contribute to our very own class book about ocean animals. They were over the moon to learn that they had become real, published authors!

Second grade is an empowering time for a child's reading development, because they go from "learning to read" to "reading to learn."

Students at my school are enthusiastic, adventurous, and creative. They love to collaborate on projects and work together! We endeavor to develop character by focusing on five traits--perseverance, integrity, compassion, collaboration, and excellence. I am amazed and humbled every day as I watch them grow into responsible, caring citizens who are learning to recognize that they are capable of shaping our world.

My Project

Our classroom is very small. We have to be very creative and efficient with how we use our space. Having a table to sit at for group lessons would help improve our focus and posture. Sitting close to the teacher while learning to read will help students stay engaged and comfortable during lessons. This table will be a central meeting spot for learning in our classroom.

Over time, educators have moved from a "sage on the stage" style of teaching to student-centered, personalized instruction methods.

Strong reading skills set the foundation for learning across a child’s entire academic career. Students come to my classroom with a wide range of reading abilities. It is crucial that they receive targeted, differentiated reading instruction. My goal is to make sure I am effectively meeting the needs of every single child in my class through small group guided reading lessons. Group learning encourages students to develop many social skills as we grow within our community. I would love to have a dedicated space where I can encourage them to reach their goals.
