My Students

My students are from a small town in Virginia. They are excited to explore and learn in an environment where they work together! They love to solve problems and learn more about the world around them.

They work well together and are very supportive and understanding of individual differences.

When someone struggles with a concept, they jump in to help and encourage one another to not give up when things become difficult. My students are inspired by other's struggles and stories of success!

My Project

It is imperative that my students all work together and support each other. I do a lot of team building activities with my students so they can get to know each other as individuals. Also, we work a lot of effective communication and collaboration to support everyone in their learning. This coming school year, I am excited to add novel studies as a means of development a strong community of learners.

Not only will these novels foster a love of reading and develop effective reading habits in my student; the novels will also develop a strong community of learners who are supportive of one another as we study character development in each novel.

"A Wrinkle in Time" is a novel with conformity and diversity as a theme. I can’t wait to read share this novel with my students.
