My Students

Every day in my classroom is an opportunity for discovery and inspiration. A typical day in my classroom involves a lot of collaboration. That is when I see many light bulb moments happen.

My students are fifth graders who love to learn and participate actively in their education.

They are enthusiastic and excited about learning new things. They love to sing, create, read, discuss, and use knowledge to solve problems. I am so proud of the people they are and are going to become.

My Project

Our history curriculum directly correlates with this novel study. In getting these books, my students will be able to learn about Benjamin Franklin and his role in the American Revolution. It will also prepare them for an activity at our school where Benjamin Franklin brings his printing press and interacts with the students.

This project will positively impact my classroom and students by allowing them to travel in their imagination to a time that a textbook only tells about.

Through the story, students will come to a better understanding of Benjamin Franklin was and how he impacted our nation.
