My Students

I teach at a PreK-8th grade school in a very rural area of Tennessee. We are known as the Warriors and are taught to Love the Purple and Live the Gold and to never give up because Warriors don't do that.

Our school environment is unique because we are a FAMILY, and we work together to become the best we can be at school, home, and in our community.

We rely on each other to do this.

The kids that I teach and work with in 2nd grade have such a love of learning and are curious to take in all that they can to become better students. You can usually find them with a book in their hands or looking up information they want to know more about. I love to watch them soak up new knowledge and have that "light bulb" go off and make connections.

Teaching these kids is simply a blessing and I am so thankful that I get to do this every day!

My Project

In our county, we started using the new reading curriculum Core Knowledge Language Arts. Using this curriculum, my students are listening to a higher level of text with rich content and vocabulary. They are able to make amazing connections to previous domains as well as real life.

The funding for this project will help purchase shared reading books that will allow my students to read grade level text to deepen their knowledge of topics such as Fairy Tales and Tall Tales, Ancient Greek Civilization, Greek Myths, the War of 1812, and Cycles in Nature.

I believe that all students need to have a book in hand, and the funding for this project will help make that happen!
