My Students

Imagine going to the same school as William McKinley! Or sitting in a classroom that Ida Tarbell taught in! This is the reality for the 8th grade students I teach in our quaint, suburban town in Northeast Ohio - a town where they can actually walk to the library and other local haunts along routes that were commonly used by the Underground Railroad.

My 8th graders are an amazing group of young adults who are very eager to learn and receive an education that will help them on their academic journeys and to become successful members of their community!

While my students love the fact that our school buildings are (literally) historical markers, we are always on the lookout for new and exciting ways we can breathe new life into our classroom spaces and activities!

My Project

When students walk into my classroom at the beginning of the year, I want them to see a bounty of books! My goal with this project is to give my incoming students access to books that are exciting, engaging, and relevant to them as teens and "tweens".

I want reading to become infectious in my classroom!

For this to happen, I need to immerse my students in choice reading!

Research has proven that kids who connect with meaningful reading material develop stronger reading skills, are more actively involved in their learning, and are more likely to engage in meaningful conversations! For these reasons, I hope to fill every nook and cranny of my classroom with books! I am requesting a selection of high interest books, including titles such as Gross as a Snot Otter, One of Us is Next, and I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic, 1912 (graphic novel).
