My Students

My greatest goal as a teacher is to instill my students with a love of learning! I work with young and energetic 2nd graders. My students are hardworking and eager to learn. Most are raised in active outdoor lifestyles and need highly engaging materials that mirror their enthusiasm and energy. They have soaring imaginations full of wonderful ideas and need encouragement bringing them to life!

My students attend a school in rural southeast Idaho.

Our school, Malad Elementary, serves the majority of the county's primary school age students in grades PK-5. Our student population is around 400 children, almost 50% of who qualify for free and reduced lunch.

Malad City is a historically rich town on the Idaho/Utah border. It is located in Oneida County, which is primarily a farming and ranching community, with a small industrial business base. Our community is tightly knit, very supportive, and has amazing parent involvement!

My Project

These materials will provide an abundance of fiction and non-fiction referance literature as my class discovers how to stay healthy by eating right. I have included books that take our food from seed to table to help highlight the importance of agriculture in nutrition. In addtion, many books have been selected to the reflect cultural diversity to be found in foods and families around the world.

Food is a fabulous and engaging topic for bringing children together and deepening thier understanding of the world around them.

This collection will be used throughout the school year and across multiple subject areas to expand my students understanding of what it means to be healthy.
