My Students

Although our school is in a rural community, we have a diverse population of students. Many of our students are fairly new to our country and are just learning to speak English. Some of our students live in poverty while others come from wealthier homes.

My classroom is a place where kids can come together to learn and have fun regardless of their differences.

We work with the motto, "We can do hard things!" During the course of our one short school year together, we learn a lot and become family!

My Project

Each year there are so many great books published but only one will win the Newbery Medal! My class is going to have a Newbery Challenge where we read as many potential winners as possible and vote on our favorite. In January, we'll watch live as the actual Newbery Medal is awarded, and hopefully we can cheer as our favorite is the announced as the winner!

Along the way, we'll be reading voraciously, discussing our favorites in small groups, and loving the new books.

With so many great new books available this year, I bet every student will find a new favorite!
