My Students

Every day I stand in the doorway and greet my students, all of them say good morning, many faces are accompanied by smiles and some even include hugs! This is one of the best times of our day. My students come to school daily eager and ready to learn. My students take pride in their work and understand the importance of school. Many come over to me daily and tell how many sight words they know or want to read to me. My student's eagerness for knowledge makes teaching so rewarding and fulfilling!

I work at a Title I school, in one of the most impoverished areas of Washington, DC.

My school has a food pantry once a week for families, students get free backpacks and school supplies. Despite financial hardships and setbacks my students understand the importance of school and come to school every day ready and eager to learn.

My Project

My students favorite time of the day is Close Reading, where I read a book to them. These read along books will be used with our classroom listening center. My students will be able to use these cds and books to enhance their independent reading time. Students will be able to pick the book of their choice and listen to it. My students will benefit from being able to follow along with the words and also hear the story. This will also be helpful for all my students that are just learning to read. These books will be used during guided reading for independent reading time.
