My Students

Our classroom is our home away from home. My students are a diverse community of learners and appreciate each other for their unique personalities.

If you walked into our room you will see smiling faces and active participation.

You will also hear students sharing their deep thinking and inquiring minds. If you catch us during a break, you will probably see us singing and dancing- mostly likely to the Baby Shark song.

We pride ourselves for creating a safe environment where everyone feels welcomed and can reach their highest potential.

My Project

I'm requesting a class set of Cursive Writing Practice: Inspiring Quotes: Reproducible Activity Pages With Motivational and Character-Building Quotes That Make Handwriting Practice Meaningful.

Though the world is becoming more and more technology dependent, there is something to be said for retaining a part of classic writing skills in the curriculum.

Cursive reinforces the mantra that learning should simply be for learning—not just to pass a test.

I'm requesting a class set of Cursive Writing Practice: Inspiring Quotes: Reproducible Activity Pages With Motivational and Character-Building Quotes That Make Handwriting Practice Meaningful.

Cursive writing develops motor skills, guarantee students will be confident when writing and signing legal documentation, helps students with disabilities, is an art form all its own, and connects students to the past. Cursive writing is one more way for students to develop the side of their brain that is not developed by basic reading and writing skills. The more diverse a teaching curriculum is, the better.
