My Students

Our school strives to find the leader in all students. Every student has capabilities, talents, and strengths that make them who they are. All it takes is a little motivation, understanding, a welcoming environment, and they are off in becoming well educated individuals that can be successful in all their endeavors. My students always strive for excellence and continue to show this on a daily. I have 45 amazing English Learners that I teach within my day. Of those 45, 10 receive services. My students make me proud and put a smile on my face every day. My students consistently do their personal best to contribute to our classroom community and are always looking forward to reaching their goals and much more.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance our literacy rich classroom that I strive to create. My class library gives my students the ability to choose books on their reading levels and their interests. My students enjoy when I read to them, and when we read as a group or independently! Every book that is placed in our class library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. These books and digital resources have been chosen with my students in mind. With these new books and digital learning resources, my students will be able to grow and learn at their own pace and levels. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books and resources will continue to help my students, not only in their reading, but their comprehension and vocabulary as well. My students have already shown their willingness and excitement to learn and be successful, and this project will only help enrich their experiences.
