My Students

"Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand," Benjamin Franklin.

I am extremely lucky to have amazing students who love to learn.

They are hard-working, dedicated, and involved in each step of their learning. They are creative, smart, and goal-oriented. My school is surrounded by a supportive community committed to furthering the education and life of each student. Our school has a focus on student leadership and finding each child's special and unique talent. I know each of my students would be thankful for the contribution to their learning.

My Project

I am in need of a working CD player. My old one does not play CD's very well and I'm looking for a more updated boombox that will be able to use Blu tooth in order to play songs or stories from my phone or an iPad. This will help make listening activities go more smoothly.

These nonfiction books are just what my students crave!

They love these Who Would Win books and they go perfectly with the different topics from our reading series and animal research. It keeps them engaged and interested in reading.

The paper trimmer is needed in my classroom because we do a lot of art work. It would be more convenient to have it close by and I can just cut the paper without having to leave the class.
