My Students

Students in our district primarily come from a rural setting. We are a K-12 building, so collaboration is important to us. Our students love to interact with the high school students and to learn from them. Many of them have mentors in the high school.

My students love to learn and work together.

They are a group of strong learners and have grown into a community this year. While learning, my group of students enjoys using technology in many ways.

My Project

The students in my class will be exposed to current events through the Time for Kids weekly magazines. Students will spend quality time reading and reflecting on the material. These magazines will create interest for Baxter students by allowing them to spend time reading and exploring new topics to explore.

Students will be inspired to become a part of making a positive difference in our world.

They will be encouraged to ask questions and to discover an interest in the world around them. My students will also be excited about opportunities for discovering new and interesting topics they will find.
