My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions. They love history, and historical figures. They have the best memory! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

My Project

I want to be able to give my class a wide variety of books that they can choose and read freely. I want to give them the ability to choose between books that they are interested in. I also want to build on our classroom supplies. As a new teacher I have lots of things that I need, to begin my journey for the coming to begin my journey for the coming years. I want my classroom to be a warm inviting space for all students to come in the future.
