My Students

I began teaching in a suburban, eighth-grade English Language Arts classroom. After three years, I know that's one of the best decisions I ever made. Today, I have the privilege of growing young readers and writers, helping students often move from basic letter-sound knowledge to reading very simple chapter books and writing realistic fiction series books of their own. Seeing all the brilliance and creativity held in my students' minds translate to the page and seeing their eyes light up with pride when they hold a bound book that they brought into being is pure magic.

My Project

With the book resources provided, I will be able to come have exciting and engaging lessons that my students will be happy to listen to and actually try to read.

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create.

My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy-I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind as I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these . I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.
