My Students

I am a very non-traditional teacher. I tend to think outside the box or classroom. I have a tent in my classroom as my reading center and picnic tables as their desks. I think of innovative ways to keep the students engaged with their own learning.

My students are an eclectic group of young people.

They range anywhere from the analytical thinkers to the ones who have had a rough start in life and haven't learned the basics to learning. My class is beginning to be excited about learning and teaching each other. They come to class expecting to learn and enjoy doing it. They struggle like everyone else when things get challenging, however we take those challenges head on and celebrate the small successes until we master the challenge. We have a great class and continue to enjoy the adventures we are taking together this year.

My Project

We will use this reading series for my chapter studies throughout the year. We will develop literacy circles where each group will read the book and analyze all the different parts of the stories. My goal is to pique the interest of the students by this historical fiction series where they will then research on their own the epic events that have happened throughout our history.

The I Survived books will give my students a chance to read and understand events that have happened in history from a perspective of a young person surviving and taking them on their individual journey.

I am hoping to expose my students to events that have happened that they hear about but don't truly understand the impact.
