My Students

Every year, I am blessed with a wonderful group of diverse students. We have a fantastic year full of teamwork, hands-on learning, and skill building. I say at the end of the year that it can't get any better than that one.

I want to be able to go above and beyond for these precious students.

Although our parents are wonderful supporters, they are unable to give more than the supplies and materials requested at the beginning of the year. Being a Title One school, we have some additional resources but could use all the extra help we can get. I would love to make their learning experiences bigger and better than imaginable when they walk through my door.

My Project

In our classroom, we study a wide variety of genres. I try to expose my children to nonfiction as much as possible, as this is an area that is more difficult but way more informative. However, finding quality and captivating text is often difficult to do.

We would love to have more books to read aloud, especially ones that have each been paired with a similar nonfiction text through an interactive read aloud set I have.

This allows us to connect aspects of the books to things in real life, expand our knowledge base even if we are lacking personal experiences, and to apply skills such as compare and contrast and text features as we read.
