My Students

I am currently a 3rd-grade reading and social studies teacher. The students in my class are exceptional and highly motivated. Our school serves students who come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Despite their difficulties at home, my students are always willing to work hard. They are eager to learn. My students work hard to excel in everything they do. I try to be an inspiration to them all by giving them the education they deserve. With just a little help, together we could create a better future for them.

My Project

My students are always excited to try new activities and new ways to learn a skill. In my class, I love to incorporate fun, childhood games to get my students engaged! The students in my class are very energetic and tactile learners. These materials will help them with reading skills without using traditional worksheets. Differentiating instruction allows students to learn at different paces using different styles! Reading comprehension is a skill many students struggle with and these materials will help those struggling students by providing more practice during brain breaks in the classroom. These materials will also help students with peer coaching and center rotations!
