My Students

My students are all from a small town and many have been in multiple schools already, but that doesn't stop them from wanting to learn.

One of my kids recently wrote "I love school, I love this class, and you are the best teacher ever!" This type of kind-heartedness and thoughtfulness is what makes the longer days better.

The students who visit my room every morning before school starts to give me a quick hug, or those who see me at a football game and can't leave without saying hello, help keep our days happy and full of smiles.

Thank you for helping keep my kiddos focused on the fun and learning in and out of our classroom.

My Project

Our weather unit begins shortly after winter break. The weather station, handheld tool, and cloud resources will help my students better understand their environment and the changes which occur in a daily basis.

The students are eager to learn about my job as a former meteorologist with the Marine Corps and I am thoroughly excited to pass on some of my knowledge to the 3rd graders.

Using these tools throughout the unit will help the students understand basic weather changes and how various aspects are measured on a daily basis.

Each day during the unit, the students will be making observations and recording their observations in order to track and understand changes. In addition, the students will use the information provided by the weather tools to compare the local weather with various other locations in the United States.
