My Students

As a teacher in a generally low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite those challenges, I strive to maintain high-energy and create a positive atmosphere.

My students are creative thinkers that need to be pushed a little academically.

My students are fun, loving and strive to be great. They love collaborating on projects and are kind to each other but we are looking for ways to help build their reading stamina while hitting all standards.

My Project

Finding various picture books to engage students while teaching the necessary skills in reading can be hard. We are anxious and excited to begin a new program in reading to re-energize us all and find that love for reading we all have deep down inside.

The redundancy of textbooks leave students unmotivated and bored.

We want to try a new reading program where the text comes alive and students are engaged and have time to collaborate. Making learning fun is our goal!

These books will help students get that love for reading embedded inside them that will last a lifetime.
