My Students

My students come from a small, rural community. Our school is K-2 building where 60% of the students receive free or reduced price lunch. Despite any challenges my kiddos face, each and every one of them strive to be the best second-grader they can be each day.

I strive to give my students real life experiences on a daily basis that will push them to learn up to their fullest potential.

My goal is to teach them how to become life-long learners!

My Project

Learning to read can be a struggle for some students. For me to better understand how to help my students become better readers, I need to study their reading. With the Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System I will be able to observe student's reading behaviors one-on-one, engage in comprehension conversations that go beyond retelling, and provide them with the necessary tools and strategies to become better readers!

Children who learn to love reading at a younger age tend to be stronger students as they progress through their educational career.

As their teacher, it is my job to find out where they may be struggling and provide reading strategies that are going to help them better understand texts and become stronger readers. Once they develop their reading skills, they can fall in love with books and characters that will take them on adventures that only books can provide.
