My Students

My sixth grade ELA and Social Studies class is full of heart, discovery, learning, growing, and loving! I have students from many different backgrounds, most of whom are receiving free or reduced-price lunch because of their financial situations.

A majority of my students do not read on grade level, but this does not make them inferior.

They thrive when given the opportunity to read texts that make sense to them, and they give all of their effort to better themselves. I am hoping to enrich their lives and improve their learning one day at a time! I would not be in this profession if I didn't love and care for each face that I see every morning. Let's ensure that every child's future is bright!

"Even on your worst day, you can still be some child's best hope."

My Project

As part of a new reading initiative within the Worcester District, students will be rotating between whole class books and book clubs. Specific skills will be taught while I read the whole class book, which the students will use independently when reading the book club books.

The book club books are leveled, so that each reader is able to access their text and engage with their own independent reading effectively.

I am asking for the copies of the three book club books. The books are not provided to us through the city, so it would be extremely helpful to me to have them donated.
