My Students

In my classroom, all students are Star Scholars. They are loved unconditionally. Scholars are provided a safe space to take risks, be vulnerable, and develop a sense of childhood curiosity and wonder.

They are thirsty for knowledge, eager to please, and desperately want to be better at "school".

We have worked so very hard to cultivate a strong culture of learning that I can honestly say that their drive for success is inspirational. They have endless energy and enormous hearts!

My scholars are innocent, kindred spirits who deserve so much more than what our society has given them. For many of my students, their future relies solely on their experiences in our school. Regardless of the unthinkable barriers that my scholars experience outside of our four walls, they know that my belief in them never wavers.

My Project

Leveled library books help students to fall in love with reading in many ways! They provide students with books that they can read successfully, fostering confidence and excitement. They also provide books that are just above a student's reading level, encouraging scholars to challenge themselves and develop new skills.

Access to engaging texts at and above my scholar's reading level will motivate them to push towards their goals.

Research shows that students who are behind in reading by 3rd grade are rarely able to catch up. That makes the work of our 2nd grade Star Scholars absolutely vital to their success later in life, and we only have one school year to do it!

This leveled library book collection is a resource that we desperately need in our classroom to make the most impact with the time that we have.
