My Students

Hello! I am a teacher who works at a wonderful school that has a diverse group of students. I have students with specialized needs and/or are English language learners as well as general education students at various levels of development. I love teaching, even remotely!

My wonderful group of students are always willing to learn new things, even while they are learning remotely!

I also love that they are always up for the challenge to strive to their highest abilities!

My group of diverse students benefits from additional support, especially while learning remotely.

I am very proud of their efforts while learning from home!

We would greatly appreciate it if you would consider donating to our remote learning classroom. Much gratitude!

My Project

Students do not have any access to libraries at school or in their communities right now during the COVID-19 pandemic. During their remote learning, I am able to continue to read books aloud to them and discuss literacy strategies to improve their learning.

Students will be able to continue to listen to and/or read rich and diverse literature while they are learning remotely!

Just because they are not at school does not mean that reading should not continue. I want them to continue to read a variety of books to keep the reading skills they have learned sharp!
