My Students

My students live in a suburban farming community in California. Our school serves a diverse community of kindergarten through fifth grade students. I have a class full of energetic and capable second graders. They are full of wonder and take great joy in learning. This is the year that they transition from learning to read and really begin reading to learn. I look forward to working with them this year and helping them realize their amazing potential. I am excited to see what the future holds for them.

My Project

I am always looking for new and interesting books to add to our classroom library. It is important to keep adding titles to keep our library new and exciting for all students.

Every child deserves to see themselves and their classmates as characters in their favorite books.

Adding these book titles will help me provide my students with books like, Hair Love and Skin Like Mine that they can relate to. These books will also help teach students important lessons about kindness, courage, teamwork, and empathy. Books like; Look I Wrote a Book: And You Can Too and a Squiggly Story will help students as we work on different types of writing.
