My Students

My students are so hard working and passionate about their learning. During Distance Learning, they have excelled at checking in with me daily and completing their assignments.

I am so proud of their determination to not let the current situation get in the way of their learning.

My Project

My students have been working so hard during the last few months of Distance Learning. Earlier this school year, the students learned about different types of rocks and minerals in science and they became very interested in crystals. They were fascinated by our classroom geode and wanted to know all about it.

As the end of the school year approaches, I would like to provide each student with a summer activity to celebrate their successes this school year.

They will each receive a geode to break open together during one of our online learning sessions.
