My Students

Amazing! That word describes the students who walk through my door every day. I teach a creative group of first grade students. My students are inquisitive and like to question why. They are full of energy and give one hundred percent to everything they do. These children have big hopes and dreams, and I try to bring our curriculum to life with hands-on, innovative activities.

When you take a peek in my classroom door, you will see eager faces, ready to learn.

You will see students who enjoy sharing laughter with their peers, putting their problem-solving skills to use with STEAM activities, creating artwork, and playing with their friends. I want my students to know the sky is the limit and that they should reach for the stars.

My Project

My first graders love to read. I am requesting a variety of picture books to add to our classroom library. The books I selected will appeal to many different types of readers. I have some books, like Rot, the Cutest in the World! or It Came in the Mail, that will make you giggle. June Peters, You Will Change The World One Day, will inspire students to reach for their dreams. Delivering Your Mail makes us more aware of how our community works and those who support it. Dumpling Dreams will resonate with students as we have a very diverse group of students, and this story talks about adjusting to a new culture. Rescue and Jessica gives us a glimpse into life with a service dog.

This project will fill our library shelves with a great selection of diverse books.
