My Students

"Prepare today for the needs that you will have tomorrow" is the moral of one of my students' favorite fables. I take seriously the role that I have been afforded in making sure that they are ready to meet the challenges that await them once they leave my classroom.

My students are bundles of energy who need to be engaged in meaningful activities at all times.

They are a diverse group with diverse academic needs and abilities. Because our main goal is have them be college and career ready when they leave our school district, I want to provide as many resources and opportunities as possible to ensure their ultimate success!

My Project

The first steps in making sure children love something is to make it interesting and inviting. I want our school's first reading lab to be both for the students across our school! The Poly and Bark Trattoria stools will be the perfect complement to make the lab inviting, while providing students with seats that they don't use in their everyday classrooms. The lap desks and floor cushions will also provide flexible seating options for my students that I hope will make them want to engage more with books and make reading even more exciting as they work on small group and individual literacy activities. I want the Reading Lab to be a place they love to visit so that they learn to love reading. Students who read are ready to meet any academic challenge!
