My Students

My students are truly excited about learning and love to ask questions, listen to stories, and participate in hands on activities! They all come from diverse backgrounds, whether that be racial, socioeconomic, etc. Each of my students brings something unique to our classroom and they are always learning from each other! I believe it is important to celebrate diversity and I try to do this in my classroom everyday!

My students have taught me so much as a new teacher.

There have been many days where I have been stressed or tired, and I looked on my desk and see notes from my students telling me that they love me and they are happy I am their teacher. Little things like that remind me why I wanted to go into teaching in the first place!

My Project

Throughout my first year of teaching, I have borrowed countless books from co-workers, the library, and even had to find them on Youtube if no one else had them. These books, like "Enemy Pie" and "The Great Kapok Tree", have been used to go along with the 2nd grade curriculum and serve as mentor texts for my students. While my co-workers are always eager to share resources, it would be amazing to have all of these books for my classroom so that I can spend more time teaching and less time trying to track down the books! Having my own copies of these books to keep would also benefit my students because I would no longer have to return them right when my students were becoming interested!
