My Students

The heart of my library and my classroom is my students. Every day I have the privilege of sneaking a peek into the future by working with future doctors, lawyers, presidents, artists, chefs, and homemakers. I get to work with tomorrow's legends on the baseball, soccer, and football fields, too!

My incredibly talented and smart students are in grades PreK to 2, speak several languages, and represent the diversity in our country.

They speak English, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, Russian, German, and Chinese. In addition to being their school librarian, I get to work with students needing literacy intervention and enrichment.

I see students in 45-minute or one-hour groups during the pull-out intervention and enrichment blocks for RTI (Response-to-Intervention) and ESL classes. I am the new school librarian and sponsor several of my school's​ clubs for my students such as Drama, Running, and Random Acts of Kindness Clubs.

My students love learning to read, engaging in STEM activities, and showing their creativity like many of the famous artists we study. More time spent engaged with enjoyable literacy tasks that are matched to their individual learning needs is key to their academic success.

My Project

My student are working VERY hard this year to develop their reading skills and they love activities in which we transform our learning space. This year we have been scientists, artists, paleontologists, and more importantly, readers.

This project will provide materials for us to create a Starbucks themed set-up to help celebrate them "Reading-A-Latte".

It will help us have party decorations such as balloons, aprons, and cups in the Starbucks colors. It will also help us have hot chocolate to drink in our reading cafe in front of our YouTube fireplace.
