My Students

Our classroom goal is that every single person in the room is always safe, happy, and learning. My class and I work hard every day to make sure we are reaching this goal by being helpful, caring, and focusing on our learning goals.

My students are enthusiastic, eager, and adventurous learners.

They are beginning to take risks and are accountable for their own learning to be successful and make positive differences to the world they are living in. Many of my students' families have traveled in search of a better education for their children. Despite the challenges they face on a daily basis, my students show up to school with smiles on their faces, ready to learn.

My Project

I want to build a classroom library that motivates my students to pick up books and read continuously. Having books that are interesting and engaging will foster a classroom community where everyone loves to read!

My students need engaging books that will draw attention to not only my thriving readers but also my striving readers.

These graphic novels and pictures books that range from all different reading levels but are equally engaging will allow ALL of my readers to have access to great books.

In order to truly learn from and relate to literature, my students need books that are engaging and vibrant but also meaningful to them. They deserve to not only learn through books about other communities and cultures but to have their own communities and cultures reflected in the literature that they are exposed to. Our community and school is a diverse place in which families come from many different places and speak many different languages. Our classroom libraries should reflect this rich diversity by providing books that reflect our community.
