My Students

I have been teaching for thirty-two years. I have taught all-day​ kindergarten, first grade and second grade since 1985. I teach in Atlanta, GA. in an area known as Mechanicville. The students in the area come from a low-income area. Ninety percent of the families are on food stamps and live in low-income housing. My elementary school has approximately three hundred and seventy-five students in grades K-5 with three classes for each grade level. The teachers provide various resources for some of the students. With trying to provide for our families, it is extremely hard to come up with funds to help all of the students who need it.

My Project

In early childhood classrooms, it is so important to give children many opportunities to engage with print in authentic and purposeful ways. Working together to make books for the classroom library does just that, while also contributing to a sense of community in the classroom. Children love and take such pride in reading books that they and their classmates have created! The students will focus on early reading skills which include letter recognition, phonemic awareness, decoding, and sight word recognition. This project will give the student of ownership. I want my students to love reading. Parents will be excited to know their child is reading.
