My Students

I teach 6th-grade reading and writing. My students come from diverse backgrounds. Many of my students have specific learning disabilities. An overwhelming number of my students are English Language Learners.

Research has shown that giving students choice yields the highest rate of achievement for our students.

I would love to give my students first-rate learning experiences each and every day. I believe that giving students access to an inviting classroom will enable them to succeed this school year and prepare them for the future.

My Project

I teach sixth graders in Miami, FL. I have students who read on grade level. I also have students who read above and below grade level. I have English Language Learners who are acquiring the language. Help me reach ALL of my students with these books from varying levels and interests. I will use the materials during small group instruction. I will also set up a small check out where students can take books home and read them on their own time. I want them to be able to read books that they are interested in and will remember for years to come.
