My Students

My 6th grade students come into my middle school ELA class at varying degrees of reading and writing abilities. My deepest desire is for them to leave my classroom with the self-proclamation of being a reader, that is, one who reads for pleasure.

Some of my students are athletes, scientists, mathematicians, entrepreneurs and musicians.

Some have yet to discover their many talents and abilities. This adolescent stage of development (11-12 years old) is a truly trying time for kids where they discover their skills with the help of a teacher who creates a safe environment for students to take risks.

At my Title I school, I focus on students' potential and I create an environment where students' differences are celebrated and they are successful despite their challenges. Our school is a nurturing, positive place for students to grow into their best self.

My Project

Some books fly off of shelves and lead to other students wanting to check them out too. Raina Telegemeier's books and the Dork Diaries are ones that my students just devour!

There is nothing like hearing a student say, "I loved that book!"

I know that the book titles I have requested may open doors for some of my hesitant readers. I moved to 6th grade mid-October and brought many books in the class with me. But, after spending more than 8 weeks with my students, I know that these titles are some of the most desired, and I can't wait to get them into my students' hands!
