My Students

Jr. High. You may think that says it all, but my students aren't your typical early teenagers. They come to school every day with a growth mindset. We greet each other with a smile and begin class with an attitude of learning.

Reading and writing are essential to every child's education.

We recognize each other's strengths and work together to make our weaknesses become strengths.

My students range in their ability to read and write. For example, some students struggle with reading the simplest three-letter words. Other students read as well as most adults. I'm grateful that my students are willing to work hard and try new things no matter their ability.

My Project

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic school closures, our junior high teachers are seeing a decline in our students' ability to read and write at grade level. There have always been struggling readers and writers, but the numbers have increased over the last two years. I had a markerboard kidney table in the classroom at the school I taught at a few years ago. I loved it! The students loved it! The "table" was a safe and fun place to learn.

Being able to express your thinking, try out a new word, work on decoding, or just make a doodle with a marker on the surface in front of you brings a new dimension and excitement to learning.

I teach English to 6th graders, Reading Strategies, and remedial reading classes to 7th and 8th graders. A markerboard kidney table will give us a place to meet as a group and creatively learn.
