My Students

Our room is set up as a hands-on, project-based learning environment with transitional seating.

My room is filled with talent and ambition!

My students take on new challenges each and every day. As a high poverty school, within our district, we are constantly working to integrate technology into the classroom. This allows us the opportunity to go beyond the textbook and beyond the walls of our building. Being a part of a district that is growing by leaps and bounds is exciting and yet challenging as well. Our students are ready to embrace and utilize technology, so keeping it in their hands is important to us. I am always looking for new and inventive ways to keep our daily routine upbeat and engaging.

My Project

We love books! I am trying to create a classroom library that is inviting, filled with books that interest my students in reading!

With a revamp of our classroom library layout with a table and stools, and new books that meet my student's needs, we will have everything in one place that students can easily access!

Please help us! If students are at school or virtual, they are able to use our classroom books so they won't miss a beat with their reading! A classroom library that is an inviting area and books they love is my plan! Thanks for helping me make this happen!
