My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Many students in my classroom come in saying they have difficulty completing practice assignments at home because of lack of supplies and resources.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

Students struggle with understanding the concepts of fractions and multiplication/division in grade. These books will help students to gain a deeper understanding of math concepts. This will also help me give ways to use cross-curricular activities in our math classroom.

These books will give students support when they are challenged with justifying their answers.

These books will also be used as a tool of integrating writing and reading into the science classroom. Many of my students lack the imagination and writing skills to clearly convey their thoughts. Using more books in math class can help students think outside the box and become critical thinkers.
