My Students

This year, I have the wonderful opportunity to teacher 24 energetic and loving first grade students at a Title I elementary school. Our suburban school has an increasing number of students who qualify for a free lunch. We are a diverse school, serving scholars of various socioeconomic and ethnic diversity as well as levels of academic achievement backgrounds. Our school's mission is to create a child-centered, forward thinking, learning community, educating each of our students in an individually appropriate manner within an environment of personal safety and mutual respect to become well-informed, productive, and socially responsible citizens.

As a first year teacher, my goal is to establish a learning environment that meets the needs of all my students.

I look forward to watching my students learn and grow within our close-knit classroom community.

My Project

My students are creative and curious individuals who enjoy learning. Finding a nonfiction text that engages all students can be challenging, but Scholastic News provides bright and colorful magazines to engage my students. Every month, Scholastic News provides four magazines with nonfiction articles for students to read. In small groups, students will study each article, practicing fluency and comprehension skills. With lesson plans, graphic organizers, writing prompts and a large teacher magazine, there are endless ways for my students to learn with these magazines.

With bright photos and engaging text, students will be excited to use Scholastic News in the classroom and at home.

At a Title One school, some students don't have access to grade appropriate text at home. After reading and working with the magazine in class, each student will be able to leave guided reading centers with their own magazine to bring home and share with their family. This project, if funded, will provide my students with engaging, grade-level appropriate text that will continue to advance their reading skills and love of reading. Thank you for supporting my classroom and providing engaging, nonfiction material for my students.
