My Students

I am living the dream this year by being able to move back to my hometown and teach Fifth graders! Serving alongside my former teachers is the coolest experience! I serve a diverse group of kids who have many different interests and ways of learning. I'm excited to take my students on a world-wide adventure as we dive into reading and explore literacy in new ways!

School has already begun, and students are so engaged and positive about learning new things.

They are especially excited about the hands-on learning activities that we will encounter this year.

My Project

Have you looked at society lately? It is changing rapidly. The world around us looks very different from ten years ago. Society is not teaching our children to see the entire world, instead, it is teaching them to focus on their immediate surroundings. With this in mind, I believe it is important to place books in the hands of my students that teach such important aspects like tolerance, empathy, and world knowledge. These students are the future of our world. What a responsibility!

I want to open the eyes of students to the many differences of our world.

What better way to do this, than through literature. First, I want to take them on a fantasy adventure with the Big Friendly Giant, where they will learn the importance of relationships and trust! Next, we will experience WONDER, as we learn acceptance and tolerance for each unique person in our land. Finally, we will take a long walk to water, where students will participate in the eight-mile simulated walk of the Sudanese children for water. Each of these projects are important for my students to experience the world beyond their hometown.
