My Students

Most of my students are English language learners from different cultural backgrounds, some of whom are new refugees with little to no English. They are extremely eager to learn and are wonderful children.

Most of my students come from low-income households.

Though this may impact their lives at home, my goal is to provide the best for my students at school. Hopefully, you can help make this happen.

My students enter the room with smiles on their faces every day and are eager to learn. They love school and look forward to learning every day. They make my job incredibly rewarding and fulfilling.

My Project

My students go book shopping for their reading baskets every week. They need a good variety of chapter books. Each day they spend at least 30 minutes reading to themselves and to their partners. They absolutely love reading time!!!

Second grade is a magical reading time for many kids.

They’re just starting to develop reading fluency and are moving from easy reader books into early chapter books. Of course, this means that picking books for them can be somewhat tricky — they need something that holds their interest but isn’t so difficult that it turns them off to reading altogether. These books are just that!!
