My Students

A vibrant group of legendary readers and writers who are eager to interact and embrace learning greet me every morning. Whether they are researching for an upcoming project or writing their next essay, they are hardworking and curious individuals.

Many of my students come from environments that encourage them to focus so heavily on academics, that they frequently miss out on building strong relationships and camaraderie due to the importance of being intellectually competitive.

As I focus on moving classrooms and teaching 6th grade students who are new to middle school, I believe that it is crucial to give them a place to know that they belong and are important and can safely take risks while working with others. As a campus, we are working to instill the importance of future ready skills; these include collaborating, communication, contributing, responding, and embracing challenges. I know that none of these can happen without establishing trusting relationships with kiddos!

My Project

Students experience walking into a classroom numerous times a day. My goal is to provide students with a cozy environment where they can venture outside of their comfort zone in terms of both reading and writing.

I aim to give students the opportunity to belong to something great and work together and have camaraderie to help each other achieve success.

Please help me give students a magical learning experience as they enter middle school. The purchases from this project will go to bringing the fantastic fantasy world of Harry Potter to life ultimately getting students excited about what can come to life when you read! Students will participate in adding to the "brick" world wall and earning house points for things they work on together. Each class will be sorted Students will rotate using the couple of flexible seating options to have a productive and conducive space to work in. The pillows will help add to the reading nook that students can participate in when finished with their work and my students with specific learning needs can read to the plush characters to practice their fluency.

Please help me give my students a cozy, conducive, and creative environment to work in!
