My Students

I teach 340 students in grades kindergarten through 6th grade. The students are young, passionate learners who love to create using myriad materials. They attend a brand new school where STEAM Education is key. Through the use of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math, the students are encouraged to solve real-world problems in creative ways by thinking outside of the box throughout the school day.

My students are beginning to understand the value of relationships, school community and the power of 'yet'.

Collaborating with one another to solve real-world problems is a real world expectation. My students realize that reading connects to all areas of their personal and academics. They have learned that reading for pleasure, for understanding, and interest contributes to their ability to communicate clearly, discuss new ideas and complete a task. Hands-on, authentic lessons provide them with the tools to solve issues that they will come across in their life, outside of school.

My Project

My Students are like the school's mascot, sharks, they love to devour the newest and greatest titles. I strive to keep books with a variety of genres, newest titles, books of interest and state award winning titles in the library for them to devour.

My students will be circling for the opportunity to read the fifteen books from the 2020-2021 Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA)list.

I know my students will be reading quality literature that will allow them to journey to places beyond their classroom, learn about life through the eyes of the characters and possibly identify with a character's struggles through these books.

My students will receive a reading brag tag for each SSYRA book they read. Also, each of them will be recognized on the school's morning news after completing three books. invited to Lunch Bunch after reading six books, invited to a morning meet up, "Let's Talk Books" after completing nine of these books and a spring reading celebration after reading twelve or more books from the list.
