My Students

As an educator, I'm committed to meeting the academic, social, and emotional needs of my students. Though my students come from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, they all desire to understand the world outside our small community. In addition, they want to succeed in school and develop the skills that are necessary for college and career readiness.

My students are curious about the rich diversity of life outside the classroom door.

Our district has adopted a very engaging and rigorous literacy curriculum. As part of its adoption, we received hundreds of new, authentic texts that are both fiction and non-fiction.

My Project

Research shows that children learn best when they have access to a wide variety of texts at their "just right" instructional level. Even though I teach fifth grade, I have readers who range from late primary through early high school levels. As a result, my classroom library is full of thousands of books.

In order for students to take advantage of our books, they need a well organized classroom library that feels safe and inviting!

These book storage bins (both for the library and for individuals) are the perfect size to store two to three books and a reader's notebook. In addition, this rug will be the perfect focal point to design a quaint space that feels like your favorite independent book store.
