My Students

I have been given the opportunity to teach the best group of little people imaginable. I looped with them from first to second and am excited to loop up with them to third grade this year!

These little people are absolutely amazing.

They face many challenges and hardships that would defeat any average person. They all qualify to receive free lunch, English is a second language for the majority of my class, and many are facing extraordinary challenges at home. My students are not average, however. They are extraordinary!

Despite the many challenges they face, they come to school ready and excited to learn! They come with open minds and open hearts and are the most remarkable and kindhearted people I have had the pleasure to know. This is shown day after day as they request extra time to work in place of recess, show excitement over every lesson or activity I plan, persevere to complete accurate work no matter how long it takes, extend a helping hand to classmates when they need it, and share anything and everything if it is helpful to do so.

My Project

When it comes to learning and growing, engagement is key. I am requesting bright flashlights to fully implement "flashlight Fridays" where we will turn out all the lights, find a comfortable place in the room to sit, and read! Right now, we are able to partake in stations with partial lights off, but it would be truly amazing to be able to do this as a whole class at the same time!

With the lights off and flashlights on, my students will be able to temporarily leave their real life worries behind and get lost in a good book.

Reading is critical for third grade students. Research shows that students should be given many opportunities to read and interest is key. Flashlight Fridays will be an exciting way to build that interest and make reading a lifelong treasure.

Thank you for considering our class!
