My Students

As a Leader in Me school, we strive to find the leader in all students. Every child has capabilities, talents, and strengths; sometimes, all it takes is exposure or motivation. The students in my class strive for excellence and thrive in classroom community.

My amazing group of 60+ students from diverse cultural, socioeconomic, and academic backgrounds need your help!

These students are working hard, but they need your help in order to access the curriculum and develop as leaders AND readers!

My Project

Who doesn't love to play games? My students need these literacy games. These games will motivate them to practice their vocabulary and reading comprehension skills in a way that is not just a boring worksheet. Practicing is vital to reading success!

A reading games library covering inferring, , vocabulary games library, Can Do Figurative Language game, and Prefixes and Suffixes Bingo will help my students build on the skills we are learning in class in an engaging and exciting way!

Helping students learn that reading is fun is perfect way to build better readers. My students will love having a friendly competition in language arts class, and they will become better readers...and leaders! Thank you for supporting our future!
