My Students

My students are astonishing! We are a diverse and compassionate fourth grade class. Most of my students are nine and ten years old, which means they are ready to live fearlessly, learn everything, and change the world. Our school is an inquiry-based IB school in a vibrant urban neighborhood.

Every student in my classroom deserves only the best every day in school.

The boys and girls come to fourth grade every day full of energy and curiosity. They are ambitious, smart, and committed.

Our neighborhood school is 60 years old, but it is young at heart! Inside its brick walls, kids happily research and write, confer and collaborate. These are urban students who walk to school from a changing and growing community. My kids reflect their own diverse world.

My Project

Do you remember reading favorite books over and over again when you were a child? My students love our classroom books to tatters, especially their favorite literature circle books and graphic novels. No matter what their reading level is, most fourth graders love to read books about other places around the world. Many of these books are filled with morals and lessons that can teach our students to be open-minded, tolerant, and that we are not so different after all.

I would like to put engaging books into my students' hands so that they will continue to or begin to enjoy reading and find books that fit their abilities.

These meaningful and funny books will be popular with nearly every one of my students and will support them as they develop their literary interests and understanding of our world.
