My Students

My students in Philadelphia are absolutely amazing! My second grade classroom is so diverse that it makes teaching that much better everyday! It is great to see how they all learn from each other every day even though they come from different backgrounds culturally and economically.

My students deserve the same opportunities as any other thriving district!

They love reading and writing. It truly makes my day rewarding! They are learning and growing every day from reading and writing in the classroom! I love watching them succeed in reading!

My Project

My 2nd graders need access to a variety of quality texts. Through these magazine subscriptions, students will have access to important world events and topics. They will increase their vocabulary and ability to understand different types of texts.

While reading these magazines, students will learn about current events and science while improving their reading fluency and skills.

These magazines are very engaging and offer online support through videos and visuals. Students will be excited to learn about a new concept each week. The magazines offer a variety of text types. My 2nd graders will be able to acquire important literacy skills by reading these magazines.
