My Students

My students are an energetic and enthusiastic group of kids who love math, science, and technology. At our school, students come from a diverse background. Our school is considered to be a Title I school; students who attend this school are eager to explore, learn, and thrive.

Remarkable students help shape our school community to be a place that encourages students to reach their true potential.

Learning, character development, and technology are cornerstones in our school. Working together as a team is a great motivator for students to collaborate and develop positive relationships within their school community.

My Project

Financial literacy will take classic books like BFG, The Secret Garden, Nancy Drew Books, Trixie Belden, and Wonders books. These books will be used to increase student literacy and help give them exposure to classic books of all styles. Students will benefit from improving their comprehension and understanding of books.

These books will be a great springboard to continue to grow in reading and learning.

Students will get a chance to read and talk about books with their peers. Students will love to share these stories with the class. I hope students will continue to enjoy reading at school and at home.
