My Students

I'm sure this has been said and heard time and time again, but my students are "my kids." Each year is a special and unique group, but they always have one thing in common. My students need to feel loved and important.

Sure, math and reading are essential, but my biggest job is to make sure my kiddos are confident and kind leaders.

I want them to know that there are people out in this world rooting for them. I hope my classroom is a place of fun, comfort and lots of rich experiences.

My kiddos come from great families, but families that work and work just to make ends meet. The majority of my students have a life where they "get what they need" and rarely "what they want."

With that being said, if you were able to look in my classroom, you are going to see fresh smiles every morning. You will see kiddos that love life and are eager to learn.

Just know, if you choose us, you are supporting a beyond wonderful group of 4th graders.

My Project

Our classroom library is growing and is our most prized possession. My kiddos and I are very dedicated to taking care of our books and making sure they get lots of love.

We would like to continue adding to our wonderful library collection with the addition of classic fairy tales with a twist.

Basically, the books are a new take on the old classic fairy tales.These fun and engaging books help address multiple lessons. These books lead to great conversations and debates about point of view, author's purpose, cultural differences, and more. Having these types of books will be a huge asset to our book collection, and will help spark great learning experiences for my kiddos.
