My Project

My students are often up and about supporting and working with one another. They spend their school days working in partnerships and groups and collaborating on various projects.

My students are compassionate, creative, critical thinkers, communicators, and collaborators.

They pride themselves on putting their brains together to solve math problems, do research, collaborate on passion projects, or work together on a presentation.

Our elementary school located in a SF Bay Area suburb. Our students are culturally diverse and many speak multiple languages. We pride ourselves on balancing academics with character development and life skills.

My class has shown a big interest in learning about different people, cultures, and ways of life. It's incredibly heartwarming to see. These titles will support my students in their journey to meet and understand a variety of people represented in the books they read.
