My Students

My students may not have material things but they have the will to succeed and a mind to problem solve. They are tenacious and savvy with the resources they are given. I love that they are willing to be vulnerable, make mistakes and learn from them, and accept constructive criticism ; and sometimes some tough love. My students showed up on the first day of school with nothing more than themselves, but that didn't matter because they trusted me to take care of them!

My students are raw in personality, speaking, and life experiences.

They seek guidance and opportunity to grow beyond themselves. Many of them need to be challenged academically, many of them need one-on-one attention due to behavior or educational gaps.

Overall, my students are special to me because I see glimpses of hope and want in their eyes. They think of my classroom as a second home and that is all I ever wanted as a teacher.

My Project

My students are wanting the chance to continue their learning in the magic world of Harry Potter. We will discuss vocabulary, complete grammar practice, examine literary elements, answer comprehension questions, write and illustrate what we imagine the story to be like, and complete STEM activities to expand thinking. This class set will allow each student to have the text in their hands and put it to work!

My students truly enjoy having physical books in front of them so they can read on the go and effortlessly look for text evidence.

They love having the magic right in their hands.
