Excited and eager minds make up my classroom of 25 students. The students at my school are taught to CARE. Choose kindness, Act respectfully, Remember honesty, and Encourage fairness. As second graders they are largely influenced by the world around them and I strive to ensure that I model values and create a classroom culture that builds on the foundation of CARE.

Working with the students and teachers we build relationships that foster a love of learning.
The best class activities always start with a great book and with all the different genres taught in school, nonfiction has always led to great interest and conversations. The "I am ..." books about ordinary people who changed the world will change the view of the world of my students. Having a copy of these books in the classroom library will promote critical thinkers and students who can understand different perspectives.
My students are fascinated by the world around them and the people that shaped it into what it is today.
My students enjoy reading these books independently as well as with partners. Easy access to these books will also help students compare and contrast and foster their excitement about discussions and nonfiction! The book bins will provide storage of the books, the binders will be used for the curriculum and lesson plans that go along with each book, and the name badges will used to identify different leaders.
