My Students

I teach first grade in an amazing school in Wisconsin. My first graders work hard every day in order to learn the fundamentals of literacy and math. Each of my students has amazing potential and a love of learning that is really inspiring to see. One of the greatest gifts of being a first grade teacher is to get to work with students who really love to be at school. I am excited to spend each day with my students.

My Project

My students are learning to build their reading stamina and skills. It can be teicky to stay focused with so much first grade energy. These bike pedals will give students the option of being active while they read! My students will have the ability to quietly pedal out their extra energy while continuing to read in the classroom. Encouraging acitvity will also promote a healthy overall lifestyle for my students. They will see that being active is an important part of life and that it goes hand in hand with learning to be a more balanced learner and person in general!
