My Students

I teach reading to students in Kindergarten-6th grade. I teach several, small groups of no more than 6 students. My students are all very eager to learn and excited to come work on their reading every day! The students I teach have some foundational skills in reading but need a boost to get up to grade level.

Our school is in a high-poverty, inner-city area.

Many of my students face daily challenges in their personal lives and therefore, I'm extremely proud of the hard work they do in school every day.

My Project

As a Reading Teacher, I try to make my students' reading experiences very engaging and meaningful. I want them to read the classics and enjoy them. Roald Dahl is definitely an author that I feel my students should know about.

We have begun reading a Roald Dahl book and my 3rd graders laugh their way through the reading.

This is just what I was going for! They are also being exposed to rich vocabulary. Some of the titles I am hoping to acquire are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, BFG and more. I know they will enjoy these classics.
