My Students

My students need the opportunity to fulfill their dreams. My students live in a small bayside community that was severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy several years ago. Some houses in our community are just being fixed now and others are still waiting. I teach in a low-income school district which means many of my families work very hard to provide for their families with many of them working more than one job.

"The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity The creative mind plays with the objects it loves" -Carl Jung.

My students are the best thing about my job. They are creative, lively and eager to explore our world. I look forward to seeing each of their bright sunny faces every day.

My Project

My students love to read. They love books and my classroom has many books to chose from. I wanted a new and inviting place for them to read and I saw this idea. “The more that you read, the more things you will know The more that you learn, the more places you'll go, ”-Dr Seuss. I saw a post using totes as reading boats. You cut the top in half and the students sit inside their boats. My children would love this and they are easy to store. It gives them each their own private reading nook and I would love to make it happen.
