My Students

My students come to school brimming with new ideas each day. They are eager to learn and happy to please. I believe that they are just beginning to tap into their full potential.

My students are bright and ready to absorb education!

On any given day you will find them engaged in many different ways. Whether it is a math game, creating Ozobot paths, or simply a good book, these kids love all types of experiences to enhance their development.

My Project

My class loves to read books and when we read them together, we build our understanding and knowledge collaboratively. What better way to introduce a topic like financial literacy by reading fun fiction books from some of their favorite authors.

This book will help start some great conversations with my kids about the importance of money management, saving, and taking an idea and working hard to help it become successful.

Toothpaste Millionaire is a story about a young entrepreneur who figures out how to make his business successful. The character needs to solve many complex math problems in order to make his business shine.
