My Students

My students are thrilling and eager to learn! They make teaching exciting and make me very proud! My students come from very diverse backgrounds. The majority of our students qualify for free and reduced-price lunch and often times don't have access to certain resources unless they are at school. I strive to make learning engaging and strive to make sure each of my students realizes their potential!

First grade is packed full of important tasks, and I love watching my students grow throughout the year!

My Project

Imagine every week having a new and exciting magazine to explore with your classmates. This project will provide my first graders with just that.

These Scholastic magazines will give my students meaningful and engaging nonfiction text to dive into each and every week.

Not only are the magazines fun and exciting, they are relevant for young learners. Each week, the content will be specific to the season, holidays, or important current events taking place at the time. This gives my young learners authentic and important information while still remaining at their level and keeping their interest.

This project for Scholastic magazines will really enhance my students reading each week and will be something our whole class looks forward to!
