My Students

I teach 4th grade in a rural public school north of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There are 18 students in my class with a wide range of abilities. My students are excited to learn and discover new ways of problem solving daily.

Education has changed a lot throughout my career as a teacher, and my students and I continue to change with it.

One aspect that has changed greatly is the necessity to incorporate technology into the everyday learning of a student. Students have a desire to learn and problem solve through the use of technology in the classroom.

My Project

"In a world where you can be anything, choose to be kind." My co-teacher and I truly believe in these worlds extensively and choose to discuss this idea through the use of the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio with our entire 4th grade class.

I want my students to read this realistic fiction story about how a boy with physical differences reshapes how people look at him both inside and out.

Through the use of this relatable story, quality literature, and powerful story elements, it would be a goal to help all of my students learn powerful character traits such as empathy, bravery, integrity
