My Students

My students are one of the best bunch of kids that I have had in all of my years teaching! They are willing to do the best in all they do and put forth the effort in the work that they produce. My kids are in 6th grade and are on their journey to middle school. I am very confident that they will continue to shine when they leave my "nest" at the end of the school year.

Helping prepare our future!

That is my goal as an educator and my students are destined to be very successful in the future! I want to continue to motivate and inspire my students and show them that they are and will be an integral part of the future!

My Project

These materials will help my students have the ability to hear good readers while enjoying their novels. I do believe in the students reading aloud, but I also believe that hearing good readers will help students learn to become good readers!

Listening to a good reader can benefit you more than you know!

Students at this age tend to be very shy when they read and may not know how to read fluently with the correct expression or tone! I like my students to hear a good reader before making them read aloud so they are able to practice what they hear!
