My Students

This year is my 23rd year in education. It is a blessing to spend my days at this beautiful community school in the spectacular mountains of western North Carolina. My school is pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, with around 550 students. Many of my students walk or bike to school. Living in a walkable community is so much fun for them!

My students attend an an A+ Arts Integration school where the arts are seamlessly infused in teaching and learning.

The community is deeply invested in the education and nurturing of each student.

The average class size is approximately twenty students and we celebrate our multi-cultural uniqueness and learning diversity. This year we added several classrooms and have seen a large increase in student enrollment. It makes perfect sense to me as we are the best school!

My Project

In February, I have the amazing opportunity to see Lester Laminack in person. Many moons ago he was my professor at Western Carolina University when I was working on my K-12 Reading licensure. I am so excited to have the opportunity to hear him speak about Reading to Make a Difference Together now that he is a full-time writer and consultant working with schools throughout the United States and abroad. During this workshop, we will explore a collection of children’s literature to help students speak freely, think deeply, and take action. We will explore the use of children’s literature to lead children to speak freely. I am requesting several of his books so that I can bring back my new knowledge and share the gift of a read aloud with my students. I look forward to using the books to help my students understand personal narratives and the speaking/listening component of our standards. Students will have the opportunity to read these selected texts in the classroom, too. I hope these books encourage my students to be more engaged and improve their writing.
