My Students

My students are awesome! They absolutely love active and engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They inspire me daily!

I try to incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and hands-on projects to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are!

They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the classroom environment that I strive to create daily.

There is nothing more beautiful than seeing my students excited about reading in and out of my classroom.

Therefore, we have silent reading built into our daily schedule. Hopefully, with your help to receive these books, students will be able to choose the books they enjoy reading that are captivating and exciting. The best way to increase reading their reading ability is to get them to read more. My goal is for these books to continue to help my students become stronger readers who simply enjoy a good book.
