My Students

I have the privilege of teaching at a Title 1 school that has a very diverse population. Each child has a unique background and home life that I enjoy learning about throughout our time together.

Every year I have the honor of being part of each child's academic, social, and emotional growth, which I find to be incredibly rewarding!

I am excited to meet my new students in September and embark on this new journey as a reading and writing teacher!

My Project

This year I will be moving from 2nd grade up to 4th grade as a reading and writing teacher. In order to best meet the needs of my 40+ students, I need new, higher lever books to use during my small group reading blocks.

The chapter books that I have chosen will help foster students' imagination, comprehension, vocabulary, and writing skills while engaging them in higher level thinking.

In the two years that I have been teaching, I have found that my students get extremely invested in novel studies and can't wait to start the next story once one is completed. With these books I believe my students' love for reading will continue to grow and the students who are apprehensive about literature will discover it.
