My Students

I teach 6th grade Language Arts at the top of the world where temperatures are well below freezing a majority of the year and where the sun stays below the horizon for 30 plus days.

"We are all connected" is our battle cry, so at our school and in my classroom we strive to create a culture of community and respect.

We endeavor to learn about and from one another. My students come from a variety of cultures, such as Inupiat, Polynesian, Filipino, Caucasian, and Native American.

My Project

Students in my Language Arts classes love to spread out and relax when they read. Unfortunately the floors at our school are very hard and quite the opposite of comfortable.

There is nothing better than curling up in a comfortable chair, with a good book on a cold day.

Here in our community, we've got those in abundance!

Another teacher at our school recently obtained some bean bag chairs from Donors Choose. "Mrs H, we've got to get some of those for our class too!" was the cry. I would love to be able to provide these chairs for my students.
