My Students

Our students are simply special because they need us. But, we also need them to balance ourselves out. This year we've started the Cluster program at our school. So the children I service are outgoing, busy and full of life.

My Project

Reading will be one of our main topics. I will focus on reading projects to enhance the love of reading to them and for them. I believe to open their minds to stories about learning, the community, animals, career options are the best we can give them. Our children minds are sharp and we must keep the open to the wonders of the world.

Hands on projects will be used in school and at home to continue anything that is started at school.

By supplying at home items, their will not be any missed projects.
