My Students

I am lucky enough to be teaching a wonderful group of flourishing first graders. They are deserving of the very best education that can be provided. All kiddos are! They are a very diverse group of students. I look forward to showing them how to be accepting of difference, while embracing what makes them unique and special. It’s going to be a fantastic and inspiring year. Thank you for caring so much about the future of our beautiful nation and world!

My Project

In an attempt to foster learning, in a different way, I would love help purchasing an Echo Dot. The dot offers lots of great tools for students.

My favorite thing about the Dot is it's ability to read a variety of books to students.

They will love being able to interact with the technology.

The Dot will also be used, often, when kids have a question and need some sort of assistance with a vocabulary term. This will allow students to take the initiative when they do not know something, rather than just skip over the unknown word or content.
