My Students

My first five years of teaching has been in first grade. Moving to a new school this year, I have had the wonderful opportunity to teach third grade. I have 24 amazing students who come to school each day ready to work hard. They have changed my view of teaching for the better.

These third graders are adventurous, creative, collaborative, and excited about our learning adventure.

Being a virtual teacher last year was tough. I didn't feel as connected to the students in the screen as I have in the past with students I taught in person. There were so many kids who left and reentered my virtual class throughout the year, it made it hard to teach in the ways we have in the past.

My Project

Being in a lower grade for the first part of my career, I had a large amount of picture books for my students to read. This year however, I do not have the chapter book library to give the students something new to read.

These third graders are ready to explore, be captivated by, and discover new literature that will support their reading adventure.

I would love to give these kids a classroom library to support this adventure. Unfortunately, due to COVID these kids have not had the push to explore chapter books. They are not used to them due to the missed months of school in 2020 as well as the many restrictions we experienced in the 2020-2021 school year. Some of these students participated in virtual learning which greatly limited the supply of literature they were exposed to.
