My Students

In a few days, 28 3rd-grade students will be walking through my door. There will be shy, eager, sleepy, and energetic students, from different backgrounds bringing with them a variety of past experiences. Our students come from all over the world, many of our students are second language learners. We are a campus of choice, where parents chose our campus as the best fit within public education in the area for their child, with 75+% of students on campus receiving free/reduced meal plans and special services, education is a priority for our students and parents.

My Project

Have you ever laughed until you cried? How often do we see students turning to technology over a book? My aim is to put books back into the hands of my students! This year I hope to focus on the stories that made me laugh, the ones I remember after all these years! This project begins with our first classroom set to read together, then we will add books of choice and hopefully a reading nook! I can hear the giggles already, there is nothing better than the sounds of laughter coming from a classroom filled with students who are engaged.
