My Students

Throughout the school year, I have the honor of working with some of the most amazing young individuals who bring with them a variety of experiences.

The students at my school represent a wide array of cultures and I feel it would empower them to learn about their world through a variety of literary resources.

Gaining knowledge of the world will allow them to value and appreciate the diversity that is within their local and global communities. The students at my school display an incredible desire to learn and never cease to ask questions.

My Project

Time For Kids is an excellent resource to inspire, empower and engage my students through reading. The journalism presented in these magazines is sure to captivate ALL the curious minds in my classroom.

Gaining knowledge of the world will allow them to value and appreciate the diversity that is within their local and global communities.

The students at my school display an incredible desire to learn and never cease to ask questions. This magazine series will surely drive their curiosity and develop mindful global citizens .

To further increase their reading stamina, I also hope to have the beloved Nate the Great and Judy Moody series available to them throughout the school year.
