My Students

Educating my first graders is my passion in life! Many of my students receive a free breakfast and a free lunch. They're from diverse economic backgrounds, but they work together to learn as a classroom community and support each other. I work hard to help all students reach their potential through a growth mindset.

My students come to school eager to learn!

They share what they're learning with anyone who will listen. It's amazing to see my students light up when they make connections in their learning and accomplish their goals while realizing their potential!

My Project

As we move into the end of our school year we spend a lot of time learning about characters. These series books will allow my students to study characters. My students will be able to learn about experiences the characters have had from reading multiple books with the same characters. My students will also be able to study facial expressions and body language through the illustrations in the books. By studying the illustrations students will be able to make inferences about the characters as well as predictions about what will happen next in the book.

Series books will allow my students to deepen their connections with characters from books while increasing their reading time due to their high interest in the characters as well as increasing their comprehension while they're reading.

Reading one book in the series will create excitement in my students and they'll want to read another book in the series!
