My Students

Virtual second grade is so exciting! The community my students live in can be high needs and yet, you will find some of the most resilient, kind, funny, energetic, and, most importantly, eager-to-learn students who are willing to climb mountains to learn.

Our class motto this year is TRY: Take chances, Risk it, make mistakes, and Yearn to do better than yesterday.

Despite obstacles that would be too much for many adults, they remain bright, funny, and fun-loving, and they really enjoy the safety and security that school brings. Our school not only keeps the kids safe, but it's a place where learning comes alive. It's a building steeped in passion and excitement, and it is my hope to continue to create a space that is safe, exciting, and educational!

My Project

WE LOVE READING! As we return to in person learning, we are looking to add shelving for our new books, and some new books that reflect a lot of the learners in our classhome.

Reading is an exceptional gateway to the world around us and these books will reflect both the students in our class and adventures we can take in our imaginations.

Organization here is key. We'll be creating shelves where students can find the new books they are eager to read. This is paramount to allowing our new texts "flying off the shelves."

I know students will find wondrous worlds in the pages of these new texts!
