My Students

I strive to provide a positive learning environment where my students aren't afraid to make mistakes, try new opportunities, and learn with and from each other. I want my students to ask questions, think critically, and be actively engaged in their learning.

In my classroom, a third of my students are second language learners, so I want my class to be bustling with conversations where students practice their verbal communication.

The students come from diverse backgrounds where differences, similarities, and diversity is appreciated and celebrated at our school. We laugh together, we learn with each other and we work together as a community.

My Project

I appreciate how my students enjoying reading, and reading books at his/her level which are not too hard nor easy. I would like to expand my classroom library with more books featuring sports. My students comb thought my classroom library for sport books. They read the chapter book and biographies about athletes.

My students enter as eight years olds, but leave as lifetime readers.

Support the students' enjoyment, dedication, and desire to read more through adding sports chapter books and autobiographies to our classroom library. Specifically, I'm asking for a baseball mysteries series that sets in various ballparks, and books by Matt Christopher, a sports series written specially for children.
