My Students

If you're looking for the best students in upstate New York, then you've come to the right classroom! I teach a diverse population of students who have come from many countries around the world. Even though they come from low-income families, they come to school and give 100%.

I strive daily to create the best learning environment for my students to foster independent growth and to inspire them to become lifelong learners.

My class is overflowing with elaborate thinkers, risk takers, hard workers, and compassionate children. They are the reason why I do the work I do!

My Project

My students struggle with math. Growth mindset is a huge aspect of our daily math classes. Getting students to believe in the power of yet allows them to know that their brain is elastic and can continue to grow with knowledge.

By giving my students access to these books on growth mindset, it will continue to strengthen the idea of never giving up even when learning becomes hard.

By utilizing growth mindset texts in my math class, it will also continue to help bring literacy into the classroom and further cement the idea that literacy and math go hand in hand.
