My Students

We have students from diverse economic, social, and cultural backgrounds. Our school is full of students who set and achieve learning goals. They are motivated to do their personal best and encourage others to do the same.

Students in my elementary school are enthusiastic readers.

They can't wait to read books that engage their mind and heart. They love books that make them think, learn, and laugh.

Everyday I hear students talk about books they are reading and how excited they are to read the new Nebraska Golden Sowers.

My Project

This project will put the Nebraska Golden Sowers into the hands of fourth through sixth-grade students! Reading these books will enable students to be a part of a community of readers who work together to succeed.

Students are engaged, excited, energized, and inspired to read as they prepare for the competition.

Each year my district hosts Nebraska Golden Sower reading competition called, Operation Read. Elementary schools from the entire district come together for a fun and friendly Golden Sower competition. Every year I am amazed at how eager the students are to meet other kids who love to read and share in the excitement of the competition. I love the "buzz" as we prepare for the competition. You can literally see and feel the energy of the students and it is contagious! Last year at the end of the competition I overheard a student say, "This was so fun! I am going to start reading next year's books right away and we are doing this again!" This excitement is truly motivational and fills my heart with joy!
