My Students

I love my students! The 18 students in my class are kind, curious, and they drive and desire to do their personal best and work hard every single day! In my class, we value respect, hard work, and a strong sense of family. We are a family in my classroom.

My students are amazing and unique in their own way.

My goal is to teach them the skills necessary to become successful in every avenue of their lives from this day forward while smiling, laughing, and learning. We are diverse and excited and ready to learn. This group of gifted Third graders is ready to keep growing and thriving.

My Project

I am so excited about this project! This project is for just about all of the Who is, Who was books in the series for kids.

These books bring to life the incredible stories of trailblazers, legends, innovators, and creators.

In my class we learn a lot about people during the school year and these books would help us when we:

*Learn about presidents when we research and write our report on a president.

*Learn about women's history month and create our scrapbook project on famous women.

*Black History month and learn about famous African Americans who have changed history.

*Research and create a doll for a famous inventor.

*Musicians, artists, and catalysts for change come to life with a living museum! Where they get the opportunity to dress and perform as a chosen person for the day. This is the opportunity for their inner performer to shine!

I am so very excited about this project, and I hope that my excitement shows in this description.
