My Students

Welcome to 3rd grade! Our classroom is full of amazing students who are engaged in learning and growing. Students in my class have opportunities to dive deeper into what we are learning and tap into what they want to learn. Our classroom is a place for exploration and cooperative learning.

Our schools culture identifies the importance of families, love, and connections.

I work hard daily to connect with my students and their families. I see what is happening in their lives and then try to connect what we are learning to what they experience.The students in my class come from a low socioeconomic situation and are almost 100% English Language Learners. My students are fun, diverse, energetic, excited, imaginative, creative, and amazing. I feel blessed everyday to work with these children and see their potential.

My Project

My students come to school and love to share new facts they have learned. I am constantly hearing about a new animal they read about on the Internet or a question they have about the moon in the night shy. By having a great current non-fiction resource, like Time for Kids, the kids will be getting lots of new information. They will be engaged in learning because this is what they want to to be reading!

My kids will be able to learn amazing new facts in school and then be able to take what they learned back to their families.

They can share what they know and become the experts on the subject. This will help my students, their families, and our community to raise children who are engaged and proud of what they know.
