My Students

My students attend a diverse, inclusive, and amazing Title I school in upstate New York. I am in my 15th year teaching in this wonderful school district!

I teach students with special needs in 4th and 5th grade who are truly amazing!

They work hard​ but struggle with a variety of subject areas. I work with intermediate students to provide additional support in math and literacy. I work with an all-star staff and I'm lucky to work with many of the classrooms in my school. All of the students at my school receive free breakfast and lunch. Also, all of the students I work with always try their best each and every day. The students at my school are fantastic and I truly love working with them so much!

My Project

It is the goal of my school to send a book home with each student this holiday season. We have almost 300 students and there is no better gift then literacy.

Some of the titles we are asking for are Katie Kazoo, Bears are Curious, and Martha Go, Go Green!

Students will come down to the office and pick out a book of their choice. Through this, they will experience the gift of owning their own book. Some students do not own one book and through this project, they will own their very first! ​We are thankful and appreciative for donors like you.
