My Students

My students are excited about school and learning! They love to move their bodies, pair up with partners and share their life experiences. They show such pride in all their accomplishments. They thrive on positivity and knowing they are worthwhile! My students come from many different backgrounds, and about 50% are English Language Learners. I love to create lessons that engage my students and connect to real world experiences. I especially love the challenge of teaching reading to language learners.

My Project

I would love to see Jen Jones' 2 day literacy conference in Raleigh, NC. I am a first grade teacher, and first graders have a huge job - learning to read! The better I can teach reading, the more my students will achieve in reading. I follow Jen Jones through her blog and Facebook page. She is an inspiration to literacy teachers and I know I can learn loads from her. My students inspire me every year, and I strive to teach them to the best of my ability. With Jen Jones' conference under my belt, I know I will strengthen my abilities.
