My Students

On March 13, I closed my classroom door until further notice. I honestly thought it would be for a few weeks, and that I would get to see my students again. Thankfully, I did get to see them, but only on the computer screen. I miss them every day, and look forward to seeing them again.

The students that I have the pleasure to teach are some of the most amazing, diverse people I have ever met.

These students come to school each day excited and ready to learn. These students comes from different parts of the city, as well as all their enthusiasm makes work such a joy and makes me want to better myself.

Even with having to teach virtually last spring, students showed up to our Google Meets and completed their assignments.

My Project

Having a subscription for Time for Kids will allow students to have a great resource to use while learning virtually, just as they would if we were in the classroom.

Time for Kids has amazing articles on current events.

It is important for all children to know what is going on in the world. Having this wonderful resource will also help students to grow as readers, building fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary.

Studying current events will help the learners of room 106 understand the importance of people, events, and issues in our world.
