My Students

As a middle school English Language Arts and Social Studies teacher in Montana, I truly enjoy learning about each of my students. Each student brings unique experiences and attributes to the classroom, which makes each day different. With a variety of backgrounds and interests, it is essential to have a diverse classroom library.

My eager, curious students cultivate an exciting, engaging classroom environment.

They read, create, collaborate, and share as they challenge themselves to learn and grow. Because of them, I continuously strive to build relationships, improve my instruction, and gather the necessary materials to best meet their learning needs and interests.

My Project

As another school year closes and a new one begins, I always take time to reflect on how I can be a better teacher. One of my main goals is to inspire a love of reading for all my students. Many students arrive in my classroom with a love of reading while others have yet to discover the right book.

In order to help those students discover the right book, I need a classroom library full of a variety of genres and topics.

With a better classroom library, I can continue to improve as a reading teacher because I can put the right books in the right hands. Please help me give my future students more books.
