My Students

I am a teacher in a Title I school where over 75% of our students qualify for free and reduced-priced lunches. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom, such as single parent homes and unemployment or underemployment of parents. These circumstances prevent them from having the diverse experiences that their peers in other not so rural areas may have.

Many of my students are confined to our beautiful little corner of the earth, but have no hope of visiting the far away places or experiencing the adventures that are depicted in many of these books.

My students are bright and eager to learn about and explore the world around them, but many will not be able to enjoy the "typical" life experiences of other children their age because of their socioeconomic status. I do the best that I can to provide them with engaging learning activities, but with declining budgets and out of date resources it is becoming more difficult to do.

These children are our future and I don't want their circumstances to define who they are and what they are capable of accomplishing.

My Project

I am working hard trying to build a library of quality literature to enhance the science lessons that I teach to my students. I strive to bring my students more engaging and hands on lessons so that what they learn will remain with them. I have learned to use beautiful picture books to bring the world around us to life in my classroom by using lessons in the professional books "Perfect Pairs, K-2:Using Fiction and Non-Fiction Picture Books to Teach Life Science" by Melissa Stewart and Nancy Chesley and " More Picture Perfect Science Lessons" by Karen Ansberry and Emily Morgan".

From exploring coral reefs to learning about the desert, my students will continue learning about the world around them in an engaging lesson format!

They will learn about trees and habitats, caterpillars and butterflys, then on to monkeys and Edwin Wiggleskin. I am so excited about this chance to be able to use this amazing collection of books in my lessons for years to come.
