My Students

I teach in a middle school for fifth through seventh grade students of diverse backgrounds and experiences. One of the qualities I like best about my students is their willingness to openly consider the opinions and backgrounds of others. Students are eager to help those who are new to our school community.

Everyone in our school works hard to foster a strong sense of community, commitment and compassion.

The best part of my day is when I spot one of my “big” seventh grade students helping out, what they like to call, the “little fifth graders”. You can see pride in their smiles when someone notices them doing the right thing.

My Project

“Junior Scholastic Magazine” will provide a source for relevant discussion concerning what is happening right now in the world. It will give my students background knowledge and information about current events to enhance their thinking and writing. The “action chairs” will provide seating for kids who require more movement while learning. Having a cupboard full of healthy snacks and containers to store them in will help students who might come to school without eating breakfast. It is hard to learn when you’re hungry.

I hope to provide what my students need to get through the day and to continue their journey through the increasingly complex world around them.

The materials, I have selected, will enhance the civics curriculum in our classroom and provide inspiration for thinking, writing and debating.
