My Students

I always like to tell my students that in our classroom they are part of a family. We all bring different things to the table. Some of us are more quiet, where others are loud and outgoing. Some students love sports and learning history and war, where others love math, or science, or reading science fiction novels. All of our interests are different, but we still find common ground and have similarities. We are all able to contribute to make our classroom the best learning environment it can be!

My Project

My goal as a reading teacher is to get the students excited and engaged in their reading. All of these books that I have chosen are top rated books and recommended for 6th graders. I also allowed students to help choose some of these books that looked intriguing and exciting to them! I believe a good book can take you to a whole other world, and I want to give that opportunity to all of my students! These books will hopefully help to engage the students, help them grow academically, and will help foster a love and passion for reading!
