My Students

I teach the most incredible six and seven year olds. My students come from very diverse backgrounds. Our school serves mid-town neighborhoods, students from a homeless shelter and safe house, and English-language learners from many different countries. We are all so different, and yet our class feels like a family. We challenge each other, learn from each other, and love each other every day.

My students are incredibly curious, inquisitive, thoughtful, hard-working, and kind!

They help each other out, learn from each other, inquire, share ideas and hugs, compliment each other and challenge each other, and come to school eager to learn everyday. I am an incredibly lucky teacher to have such a sweet, ambitious group of six and seven year olds!

My Project

My 22 first graders absolutely love listening to stories. You can see magic in their eyes when we read aloud books, and they are so engaged when they get to listen to our class listening library.

Our current listening center has been "well-loved," and it is in need of an update.

I am hoping to provide my students with new CD players, as ours are currently broken. I'm also eager to increase their access to the collection of stories in our listening library by creating kid-friendly storage systems for the books, cds, and headphones.

I know that a new, updated listening center would allow my students to continue to develop a love for stories!
