My Students

I teach 32 scholars in a rural community located in California at an aspiring STEM magnet elementary school. Our school goal is to incorporate science into all aspect of the classroom and improve students' reading skills overall.

Eager is the best word to describe my students.

They're eager to learn, eager to create, and eager to be inspired! They are compassionate and inquisitive about the world around them. I am fortunate to teach a classroom of diverse learners which include children who suffer trauma related issues.

In a typical school day students are collaborating, interacting with technology, and being put through academic and social challenges. My scholars yearn for ways to explore their inquires from the world of science and figuring out how to navigate socially.

My Project

Representation matters! My classroom library needs to reflect the learning environment I want my students to thrive in. My students and my vision for our classroom is one that is forward thinking, inclusive, and filled with learning opportunities.

In order to make my learning community the best it can be and to accomplish our school goals of being a STEM focused school and improving students' reading skills, I have hand selected books that encourage exploration and embraces differences.

My classroom will celebrate that fact that anyone can be a scientist from titles such as Rosie Revere, Engineer and Scientist, Scientist Who Do You See. Rounded out by books that celebrate mistakes and differences like The Beautiful Oops and Same, Same but Different. These books will enrich our culture of science and acceptance.
