My Students

My students are some of the most special kids I have had the pleasure of teaching. They are bright, funny, and full of life. Our classroom has a diverse group of learners, who challenge me to be the best teacher I can be. Many students face academic, and personal challenges each day that may interfere with their education.

Despite the odds that face them, my students show up to school every day with a smile on their face, ready to learn.

I teach at a Title I school in Nampa, Idaho. Many of my students are English Language Learners who depend on differentiated instruction to meet their needs. In our classroom we use discussion and exploration to make their learning applicable and interesting. My students are motivated to learn, but thirst for material that is interesting and relevant to them.

My Project

Imagine a classroom where students are invested, and interested in what they are learning. In my instruction, I strive to use materials that are relevant, relate-able, and interesting. To do this, my students read a new book every other month to learn their literature standards. I am requesting three class sets of novels to use in our reading instruction. I firmly believe in providing access to an education that is transferrable to the real world.

Using real novels allow my students an authentic educational experience.

These books will be used to teach our reading standards while capturing the interest of my students. Students will participate in novel groups, where they will engage in discussions about what they have read. Not only are we using real materials, but they are engaging in discussion that cultivate life skills.

Coraline and Holes are both award winning books that my students are bound to enjoy. Nickel Bay Nick is a holiday themed book that will be an excellent resource to explore theme. The miscellaneous supplies, such as the tablet stand, will allow me to effectively deliver my instruction to my students. I will use the tablet stand so my classroom iPad can be used as a document camera. Thank you for your support in my students education!
