My Students

My amazing group of students come from all areas of economic and ethnic backgrounds. There is never a dull moment with this dynamic group of fifth graders.

Their curiosity and enthusiasm are inspiring on a daily basis.

My students and I create a safe and productive space, a space that promotes taking risks, allows for respectful disagreements, and encourages critical thinking and productive problem-solving.

These amazing young people excel and thrive on opportunities to explore and build on their thinking.

My Project

In our world of electronic games, social media, and television, getting lost in a good book has become a seldom occurrence. Students need to be shown that a book is not a task but an escape into worlds where dragons fly in the sky, trees share their vast wisdom, and heroes are born from all ages and cultures. Although non-fiction and informative reading are an important skill, kids who read fantasy novels on a regular basis are more likely to express and explore their imagination, which is an essential element to childhood. The major advantage of the book Savvy and the genre of fantasy is that it can open up possibilities; it is not confined to the boundaries of the real world.

There's only one requirement: a willingness to dream.
