My Students

My students are an energetic, curious, and kindhearted group of individuals. They "Choose Love" by striving to be compassionate, grateful, courageous, and forgiving young men and women. The students in my class are a diverse group, representing many different cultures, religions, and backgrounds.

Our class works hard throughout the year to set high expectations for ourselves both academically and personally.

We work as a family to support one another through open and honest communication within our community circle meetings. Relationships matter in our class and are the foundation for all that we do at school.

My Project

My class this year has an insatiable desire to read! Having a classroom library full of high interest books has been a key factor in making this happen. The culture of reading in my classroom has evolved into mini book clubs forming on their own and more than half my class this year has read the Percy Jackson book series after enthusiastic book talks by students. Earlier this school year, a DonorsChoose.org project allowed me to add new books to my classroom, including the title The Land of Stories. This now worn copy has prompted my students to request the rest of the series.

The titles I have included in this project are based on requests from my students and include books that represent diverse characters and experiences.
