My Students

My students are becoming Super Readers! Even though most of my students come from backgrounds that haven’t emphasized education, we are working on changing that attitude. In my classroom, we embrace books and we spend time reading books of our choice every day. We are inspired by each other's reading and we share book talks and rich conversations about books.

My students are incredible young people who are going to change the world!

We have been reading books and stories about young people who have made major changes in their communities and even the whole world. I can't wait to see what each and every one of my students do for our world!

My Project

Our next big thing involves more graphic novels, most by Kazu Kibuishi. The Amulet series has inspired more precious non-readers than I’ve ever been able to help before. They’ve finished the series now and aren’t sure what to read next!

I would love to hand them another book by their current favorite author!

I can already see the joy on their faces! These students have gone from zero confidence in my classroom to doubling their reading scores! I have seen how proud they are when they earn passing scores! And my favorite thing of all is when they beg me for more reading time! Help me help them!
