My Students

My students this year are a loving and energetic 3rd grade group. They love telling stories and giving hugs. Our school’s 3rd grade team is departmentilized so I get the privilege of teaching math and science to two classes totaling to 32 students. Our school is made up of a culturally diverse population with 100% of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch.

I would love to see my students get so excited to learn when coming to my class that they are able to stay focused and engaged.

I strongly believe that every student, no matter where they come from, deserves an equal chance to excel and succeed.

My Project

Many students have so much pressure to do well and pass tests that they forget what it is all for. Why are they learning all these things in school--what is it really going to do for them in the future?

I tell my students every day that they are SOMEBODY!

No matter where they come from, what they look like, how they dress, what the believe, how big/small they are, or how old/young they are, they are SOMEBODY and should be respected.

I want my students to leave my classroom at the end of the year knowing they are somebody and they will go places in life. What I am teaching them--social and educational--are things they will take with them no matter where their paths take them.

These books will be given to each of my students at end of the year. We will read them together and talk about the meaning of the book and I will sign each book.

Our school does not do yearbooks, but this will be a great book to take with them each year and have their teachers from grades 3-12 sign and write something about the child to motivate and inspire!
