My Students

The first thing you see when entering our classroom is a sign that reads "The thing I love most about my classroom is who I share it with" . That not only exemplifies how I feel each day as the teacher, but also how my students feel about each other.

We've become a family in Room 13, full of second graders who are energetic, inquisitive, and love to learn and explore.

Since the start of the pandemic many students have missed a great deal of instruction and have subsequently fallen behind. It is in times of struggle though, that we learn true resilience and these little ones are working so hard to make up for lost time! And as families do, we rally together to build each other up, success for one is success for all!

My Project

Many of our second graders have fallen behind in reading because of COVID-19. Research has shown that struggling readers should not be attempting to read leveled readers, but rather decodables. Decodable readers allow the student to use their phonics skills to read and make sense of the story. These books will help them enjoy reading rather than becoming frustrated.

Frustrated readers often become students who hate reading, the goal of this project is to ensure that every child has books they CAN read and feel successful.

By donating to this project you will help me provide every student, regardless of reading ability, something they can read in class and at home.
