My Students

I have the privilege of spending my days with eager, curious, and enthusiastic 7 and 8-year-olds who want to do their very best at everything they try. They are growing up in a world that allows them to be individuals and respects their individual differences and learning styles.

Each year, I try something new to allow for greater flexibility and to encourage collaboration and deeper learning.

I am very excited about the dream I have for the students I am working with this year!

My Project

Do you remember the first time you saw a live stage performance? Our students have the opportunity to see the TheatreWorks USA performance of "The Magic School Bus: Lost in the Solar System" at Sangamon Auditorium to have that first experience of their own.

"The Magic School Bus" is a beloved children's book and animated television series that combines entertainment with education and inspires our second graders to explore the world around them.

Ms. Frizzle's class frequently takes field trips on "The Magic School Bus" to not only learn about the world around them, but to actually experience the world, whether that involves being baked into a cake to explore chemistry or to become microscopic and travel around the body of a sick classmate to learn about germs and white blood cells.

In this particular adventure, Ms. Frizzle and her students head to the planetarium to find that it is closed. Therefore, Ms. Frizzle truns the bus into a rocket and takes her class into outer space where they explore gravity, the planets themselves, and even an asteroid belt.

Imagine being seven or eight and seeing some of your favorite characters come to life on stage before you! This will be a memorable experience for our they will NEVER forget! We appreciate your assistance in giving our students this first experience of a live stage performance!
