My Students

My students are incredibly curious about the world around them. There are five different languages spoken as a variety of different cultures are represented in the classroom. These differences make us create a wonderfully diverse learning environment.

As a community, we strive to learn from our mistakes in order to make the world a better place.

These students remind me every day why I became a teacher. They have open hearts, and growing minds that are eager and ready to understand the world.

My Project

Many of my students are below grade level in reading. It can be challenging for them to feel as though they are succeeding as students. Part of this challenge is due to the fact that words get much more complicated as texts get more difficult.

The Megawords program will allow my students to study challenging words in a systematic way.

This will enable them to grow as readers and gain the confidence they needs to be successful in middle school and beyond.

My students are incredible young adults. They are excited about learning. These resources would help me better support my students.
