My Students

I entered my first year of teaching not knowing what to expect. I teach third grade at a campus where nearly all scholars come from economically disadvantaged households. From the start I treat my scholars like I coached my athletic teams, instilling the idea that we are all in this together.

My classroom has a different vibe; we march to a different drum, we read outside, we read on desks, in cubbies, and under tables.

My scholars work in groups of two or four and sit in table groups for cooperative learning. The work we do in this classroom is focused on relationships and presenting general education content in a variety of ways to keep scholars engaged and make scholars comfortable in their learning environment. We celebrate all wins together each day no matter how small. My students are AMAZING!

I was overwhelmed by the out of pocket costs my first years of teaching and my mission is to make my third year of teaching more dynamic and equally awesome!

My Project

Think vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, conventions PLUS PUZZLES. This learning toolkit will be essential to learning in my classroom. The VersaTile Kit contains booklets for Vocabulary, Social Studies/Science/Literature Comprehension, Language Conventions and Reading Fluency.

These Reading resources will allow scholars to work independently at their own pace on their current reading level allowing for personalized skills practice and promoting literary growth.

The best part is when scholars answer all the questions correctly all they have to flip the VersaTiles over to check their answers. I use VersaTiles in centers. I like that I can pull books based on grade level/reading level to make sure my scholars' needs are being met.
