My Students

I team-teach third grade and I love it. I love my students and I learn just as much from them as I hope they do from me! My students are full of life and love working together each day in our classroom.

I am blessed to be their teacher and I love seeing them get excited about what they are learning!

My students love to read and I love to be able to provide a positive, print-rich and comfortable environment for them to learn in each day.

My Project

My students are great writers and they work hard every day to improve their writing skills. One thing I focus on is revising and editing, and students need dictionaries and thesauruses to help them!

My students need new dictionaries and thesauruses to help make their writing sparkle!

The current ones I am using are older and the pages are falling out! This makes it hard for them to use and they become frustrated when the pages continue to fall out.

These will be used daily in both of my classes and hopefully, for years to come! I appreciate your support of my students and our classroom!
