My Students

"I understand now! Let me show you what strategy I used." As a teacher of 24 students in a community school, I see the need for making my classroom a safe and comfortable place to learn, grow and achieve. When I hear my students talking to each other with respect and are willing to helping others, I know that I have done my job.

My students love to learn and I want to continue to foster that love of learning for them.

I believe that all students should have the opportunity to have every resource possible to help them to continue to learn and grow.

My Project

By having these new books we will be able to have class discussions and do novel studies.

Our students love to read.

By having these classic books we can foster that love of learning and reading by doing meaningful activities. We will tie in history, current events and cultural differences. This will turn into something that our students will never forget. As teachers, we have learned that reading and making connections, students will have a better understanding of content as well as comprehension. What better way to do that than with the joy of reading. Cant wait to get started!!
