My Students

My classroom consists of enthusiastic 8 and 9 year-olds. Our school lies in a rural, high-poverty district in western Maine. Although my students are faced with many challenges, they remain energetic, inquisitive, and creative.

My students are driven by curiosity; they constantly make insightful connections about the world around us.

My goal as a teacher is to create a classroom environment that fosters a love of learning and allows my students to explore their curiosity about the world. As I gain experience in education, I recognize how important it is to create a classroom space and environment that best meets the needs of my students. They need opportunities to explore, move, and create to develop as learners.

My Project

Graphic novels are my students' favorite type of book to read. Our "graphic novel" shelf is often empty because kids simply love to read them! The best part about graphic novels is that they appeal to ALL readers. From ambitious readers to reluctant ones, graphic novels know how to hook kids and keep them engaged.

Reading graphic novels is real reading.

Sometimes adults worry that graphic novels aren't challenging enough for kids. However, graphic novels manage to weave in new vocabulary, relevant themes, or historical content into a kid-friendly format.

It's my responsibility to provide students with reading material that helps them realize reading should be fun. When I ask my students what books they would like to see more of in our classroom library, the response is always, "Graphic novels!" Adding these titles to my library will foster a love of reading and create a buzz about books!
