My Students

I wake up each morning filled with joy, knowing I have the pleasure of teaching my amazing first graders! Fascinated with everything from leaves to portrait art, my students are inquisitive and thrilled about learning. The enthusiasm that these six- and seven-year-olds show for their learning is a daily inspiration and motivator.

My kiddos exhibit a true zest for learning: beaming about books, maneuvering through math problems, and searching for scientific answers.

Ready for any challenge I pose them, my students show the potential and necessity for a strong educational foundation.

My class is part of a neighborhood public school in a community that is growing and changing every day. With many students coming from parents and grandparents who also attended the school, I am intent on providing my students with a first grade experience that they and their parents will fondly remember.

My Project

My first graders love to learn about the world around them, past and present. Social studies is often taught through our literacy instruction, but my students are craving more!

A subscription to Scholastic News will bring high-interest, social studies-themed reading materials into our classroom monthly.

The Easy Reader Biographies are just what my growing readers need to match their curiosity about the lives of historical figures with books they can truly comprehend. Even better, since the biographies and magazines come in multiple copies per text, I can also use these materials for guided reading, when my students need more support.
