My Students

I have taught upper elementary for two years at a low-income, high poverty school district. This 2019-2020 school year, I will be teaching second grade. I absolutely love the energy my students bring to school everyday.

Some do not have the best home life and are eager to come to school to feel loved and accepted for who they are.

As their teacher, it is important to make sure they feel comfortable and wanted in the classroom environment. My students help me learn and grow as a teacher while I strive to continue to build relationships with them in order to help them succeed academically!

My Project

Think about the last time you picked up a really good book. Think about why you fell in love with that book or series and who encouraged you to read. I strive to be that teacher that gets students to open a good book just because. I want students to feel the endless possibilities of picking up a book when they step into the classroom and see our classroom library.

These books will help our classroom library grow, just like us in Blooming With Miss Flores' class!

Each book was carefully picked with students in mind. We will use these books in the classroom for student enjoyment and for read alouds. I have seen students fall in and out of love with reading. My goal is to keep the love for reading going as they continue to learn to read and eventually read to learn!

"The more that you read. The more things you will know. The more that you learn. The more places you'll go!"- Dr. Seuss
