My Students

I teach hardworking, motivated, inquisitive first graders. I absolutely love this job! My littles are always questioning, conversing, debating, engaging, and most importantly, learning. We love to read, we love STEM, we love calculating and solving math problems, we love diving into science experiments, and we love to write. My students have invested in their work as well as their peers around them.

Our school is a three-time National School of Character, A Missouri Gold Star School and a Blue Ribbon School.

My six and seven-year-olds shine every day.

My students are natural born leaders. They are hands-on learners, they thrive when provided with interactions and experiences. Every day is a great day in first grade! I am so lucky to call these kiddos my students!

My Project

We LOVE books! In fact, we can't get enough. My students are at the age where they are so invested in books that they read through them like crazy. When the holidays come around? Forget about it! We fly through our holiday themed books within the first few days of the month and are left without anything new to read.

We need more books to help us learn about and celebrate the holidays!

Whether its Halloween, Easter, Thanksgiving or Valentine's Day, we simply need more books. I have requested books like The Velveteen Rabbit and the Tale of Peter Rabbit to read around Easter, Thanksgiving in the Woods and Balloons Over Broadway to read around Thanksgiving and so much more for so many more holidays. We would LOVE to see these titles in our classroom and would love your support.

We thank you for your time and consideration!
