My Students

I have the pleasure of working in a small, rural school and community. Our newly consolidated district serves approximately 350 students 4K- 8 grade. I teach approximately 100 of these students in 6-8 grade. My favorite part of working in this district is building the relationships with the students and families. I live in the district and it is so much fun to have the opportunity to teach my neighbors, family members, and the children of my friends.

Growing up in a rural area, many of my students don't get a chance to experience new cultures, diversity, and the world around them.

In my social studies and language arts classes, I try to expose them to current events, the current atmosphere of the country & the world, and the diversity of people around us.

My Project

Please help me fill my bookshelves with new books that will engage my young adult readers. The best way to see reading growth is the read, but young adults want to read books that excite them and that they can connect to.

My project is full of new released books that will hopefully draw in my students and encourage them to fall in love with reading.

By keeping my classroom library updated with new, exciting books, I am making sure that students have the best literature at their fingertips. Hopefully the books I've chosen will excite my students and encourage them to dive headfirst into their books.
