My Students

My students are beyond amazing! They come to school each day eager to learn! We are at a Title I school in Nevada where many students believe New York or Paris is just a few miles away on the strip. This has to change!

I have adjusted the way I teach from a text, or a set curriculum, to teaching by experiences; my students have never soaked up so much information in all my thirteen years of teaching.

We use challenging vocabulary words each week and thrive to find multiple ways to use them, whether it be watching a live feed of a lady "coax" an abandoned puppy from under a house (this went viral), or having a Glow Party to learn about odd and even numbers. Our favorite was "traveling" to Italy for lunch and having to fix the menu that had no punctuation! I have never been so excited to go to work each day and my students that have attendance problems in the past are actually coming to school!

Please help us out... these kids are "going places"!

My Project

How did you feel waking up for school as a child? Was it easy for you? Did you want to get up and rush out the door to sit in class and complete a packet or worksheet? I've found the solution! Morning Choice allows for my students to WANT to come to school and start their day with PLAYTIME!

Just imagine starting each day with a hug from your teacher, eating breakfast (we are a TITLE 1 school), and getting to play!

Legos, Lincoln Logs, board games, and card games will be available for them to use for 20 minutes. The first few weeks were rough when we started...they didn't know HOW to play, read directions, or communicate the rules. Now, it's amazing to see them play. My attendance rates have already SOARED since I have started doing this! My students want to be here and are learning how to play cooperatively, read and follow directions, and learn all at the same time!
