My Students

I teach the greatest group of students who are eager to learn, have the biggest hearts, and have an outstanding work ethic to achieve anything they put their mind to! Every single third grade student loves learning but they all come from different background with their own challenges. However, when they enter the classroom, they are inventors, mathematicians, scientists, explorers, readers, authors, illustrators, geologists, and everything in between.

When they are inside the walls of our school, they are more than just students; they become our children and our family.

We laugh with them, cry with them, and encourage them even when the going gets tough. We love each one as if they are our own! I would love nothing more than to be able to provide the best resources and experiences so that they can grow to be the best they can be.

My Project

These mystery books will not only give every reader an opportunity to learn about mysteries, but it will also give each student the ability to read independently but also with a partner. Each student will be able to have his/her own copy for note taking, but also will have a partner to investigate the story with.

We want our students to be able to read a variety of texts from a variety of genres.

Students are now starting to understand different book genres and getting lost in a mystery, turning each page with suspicion, and keeping notes and clues along the way will help these readers develop a love for a new type of fiction story.
