My Students

My students are hungry for learning, and more specifically, literature choices that reflect characters who experience life similarly to them. Seeing themselves in their learning choices will vastly improve engagement and motivation in reading.

As a whole, my students are eager to learn and put forth their full potential in all that they do.

They particularly enjoy it when I make learning relevant to their lives. My students grow daily by leaps and bounds, both in their reading skills as well as personally, socially, and emotionally. They are capable of much more than we can ever dream or imagine!

My Project

This project is for a few random items that will serve different purposes in our classroom. The multi-drawer rolling cart will help us keep our readers' and writers' notebooks nice, neat, and organized. As of now, they are just haphazardly thrown in a random bin. The pencil dispenser will allow for more organized lending of pencils during literacy class. It is frustrating to see pencils strewn all over the classroom. This fun tool will help encourage students to borrow and return in a timely manner. I am hoping to use the string lights to enhance our reading corner of the classroom. The self-inking stamp will be used for hall passes to minimize wasting time manually filling them out.
