My Students

I teach awesome second graders! We build community and treat each other like a class family. Our school is a safe, family-friendly school. We are a Title I school with over 82% of the students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Our school is diverse and inclusive of many different cultures.

Second graders love to learn!

Some of my students' favorite things to do include reading, writing stories, and playing math games. My students are learning many positive character traits such as perseverance, cooperation, and being forgiving of others when they make mistakes.

We believe in getting better and better every day!

My Project

This financial literacy project will add several new book titles to our classroom that will help the students learn valuable lessons.

Through these books, the students will learn about different aspects of money: earning, saving, spending, donating, giving, etc.

My second graders love Berenstain Bears and Max and Ruby titles so they will enjoy learning through these books.

We will use these books in both math and social studies. I love using books as introductions to lessons. Then the students can use the books in their book boxes for independent reading throughout the school year.
