My Students

Our school corporation is a rural district, trying to equip our students with the skills and experiences to be successful in our ever-changing world. I have the privilege to teach a multi-age kindergarten and first grade class. I love teaching literacy, problem solving, and thinking skills!

My kindergarteners and first graders are naturally curious, and I want to help support them as they collaborate and learn creatively!

As their teacher, it is my goal to create opportunities to make them curious about the world around them. My goal is to empower them to ask questions and find answers. My students deserve it!

My Project

My students need engaging text so they have the opportunity to apply all that they have learned from classroom mini-lessons. Students need choice in what they read. These books are student requested titles from trusted authors. Branches books are a perfect fit for my readers to transition from easy readers to chapter books.

Becoming an independent reader is an essential life skill for all students.

The students are diverse and unique, and every year I enjoy helping them learn about new authors, series, and characters. This year my students love dragons, mysteries, sports, and scary stories. It is my goal to provide text that both interests and excites.
