My Students

My students are hard working, highly motivated and kind. They are so curious and love hands-on STEM activities. Working with science, engineering and technology, my students are able to discuss and explore the possibilities in our present and future. They want to be astronauts, design race cars, invent jet packs and more. My goal is to provide them with opportunities they wouldn’t normally have. They deserve access and knowledge that will allow them to achieve their greatest dreams! Thank you.

My Project

By providing access to these great books my students will have the opportunity to deepens their comprehension. They will solidify their decoding strategies, expand their vocabulary, and explore unknown worlds within the pages. The love of literature is such an important thing to awaken at an early age. These titles were specifically chosen to challenge my students and awaken their sprint. They will call upon my students to question right vs. wrong. To experience empathy, and to see experiences from a different perspective. My goal is that they come away stronger readers, stronger people, and more well rounded human beings.
