My Students

I am blessed to work with 24 amazing learners every day.

They are energetic 8 and 9 years old and full of wonderful ideas.

We have learned to embrace our fabulous struggles this year and learn from them. We laugh everyday and have a passion for learning.

My school is 100% free breakfast and lunch. Many of my students face daily challenges at home that help make them stronger individuals. They all bring such a strong spirit and love to help create our family.

My Project

Scholastic News is a magazine style, reading resource. We will read it together to stay current on events in the world and to gain knowledge about a variety of nonfiction topics.

Being able to have their own copy of Scholastic News to take home and share with their family will add to the high interest for students.

My students will use what we learn from the Scholastic News to write in their interactive Science and Social Studies notebooks. Being able to tie reading and writing together will foster confidence in the learners. Scholastic News has wonderful photos to enhance learning.
