My Students

Our students are our future. My students come from a very low income area but don't let that define who they are. They are kind hearted and eager to learn when they come to school. I want to give them a space where we can grow together and achieve our goals as a class and as individuals. I want them to come in everyday and know that I care for their learning and want to develop them as a person.

My Project

Many of my students this year are struggling readers and in need of help passing state testing. And in my class we don't have a spot of a group to gather to get a one on one guided reading practice with me and other readers like them. My goal is to get a spot for me and a small group to get together and better our reading. So that we can pass out state tests and be a more confident reader!! With this table I can also start a guided math program with my students so that we can improve our math skills as well. I want my students to leave my class this year as successful learners.
