My Students

The students in my class come from diverse backgrounds. While many of them live in poverty and are in the process of learning English, they all love coming to school each day and work hard.

My third grade students are kind, friendly, and helpful.

They work well together and preserve through challenges. They are respectful and responsible. They help their peers and me. They have a good sense of humor, and are excited to engage in all the activities we do.

My Project

The students in our classroom currently have a flexible seating plan. I would like for them to be able to be more comfortable throughout the school day and have more choice in where they sit.

I am also looking to help make reading more fun for the students.

We are giving students more independent time and I want them to be comfortable while they read. The students will enjoy reading their new books while sitting in child-friendly seating.

The students are excited about reading, and love to receive new books, especially non-fiction books. This way they can continue to read these books all year, instead of me having to return them to our school's book room.
