My Students

My students are high energy, positive, eager kids who love to learn! They have a kindness that would knock your socks off and an energy that is contagious to all as soon as you walk through my classroom door. These kids are here to learn and strive to do their very best.

You could have the opportunity to provide for these kids!

My students are thinkers, activists, scientists, artists, journalists, mathematicians, meteorologists, philosophers, and much, much more.

We are on a journey to show the world that children are our future! Please consider investing in their hopes, dreams, endeavors, and successes!

My Project

In today's diverse world, our students deserve to have access to a library rich with culture and unique outlooks. Today's families, life styles, backgrounds, jobs, etc. are very unique. To have a library of texts that reflect this diversity is important for our students! Students will light up when they read a story about someone that is like them, or when they learn about how someone's home is completely different than theirs. I want to provide a library full of a world of experiences for my students- to reflect our incredibly diverse and incredible world! I want to welcome children to a library full of stories that have a myriad of backgrounds, races, and settings. I am requesting a wide range of literature titles that support and demonstrate our diverse world.
