My Students

On any given day, you can walk into my classroom and see a bustle of noise and excitement! I am so excited to teach, even after ten years, and my students are equally excited to learn. Striving to build a strong classroom community, the most important skill learned in fourth grade isn't mathematics, science, reading or writing, although those are important, it's how to be a good friend.

As stated in one of my favorite read alouds, "When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind." We work very hard to build relationships, take a vested interest in our peers, and translate that into a strong community of learners.

We come from different backgrounds, different home situations, different religions, but we stand on common ground. I love strengthening growth mindsets and there's nothing quite like hearing one of my students saying, "I'm just not very good at this....yet!"

My Project

My students are blossoming into amazing young readers. They are taking responsibility for their learning and WANT to read! Several of my sweet students have approached me because they do not have a lot of books at home. Of course, I let them borrow mine, but they want more!

Adding to our classroom library and creating a space for take home readers will fuel that desire to become better readers.

Everyone loves that new book smell, I want to give my school babies an opportunity they may not have elsewhere. The opportunity to grab a book and read it FIRST.

I think that having a new library of take home readers will be just the boost my kids need to tackle the second half this year with eagerness to learn and excitement for what's next. Thanks for considering our project!
