My Students

I feel so lucky to have such a great group of students for my first year of teaching! Every day, I see signs of passion for learning from them, whether it's asking if they can write a story when they're done with an assignment, or excitedly telling me they are reading a book with over 300 pages in it!

My students have developed positive attitudes inspired by the desire to reach their goals.

It seems that almost every day I see new evidence of growth. They are always encouraging and helping each other and finding new ways to help make for an even better classroom, school, and community environment. Years from now, when I look back on my first year of teaching, I will be doing so with a smile on my face- no matter what the numbers look like- because I had such a thoughtful and caring group of students whom I will never forget for the best reasons possible.

My Project

I've decided to get a head start on ordering supplies for this next school year. These materials will allow me to better teach next year's students reading, writing, and grammar skills.

2017-2018 will be my second year teaching, so I now have a better idea of what I will want for my students.

The writing book provides for me 180 days of more specific, broken-down instruction. The grammar resource will make note-taking more interesting and interactive for students.

Finally, I am very excited to try out a novel study next year! We will read Charlotte's Web in full, rather than just the excerpt that's included in the current reading resource. I am very excited to try new things this coming school year!
