My Students

Curious, thoughtful, and hardworking are three words I would use to describe the students I have the pleasure of working with each day. I teach 3 ELA blocks. One class is an inclusion class with students who have a variety of learning challenges. Another class is an advanced ELA class with students who have been identified gifted in reading. Each of their needs are diverse, but my goal for each of my students is to develop a love of reading. Providing a classroom library full of high-interest books for my students is one way I try to instil a love of reading in them. My students persevere through learning challenges in order to reach the high standards with which they are set. They enjoy learning through hands-on and interactive lessons.

My Project

"Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are." This quote by Mason Cooley is posted in the front of my classroom. It is a reminder to my students that reading is a tool to help us change the world we live in and take us to faraway places. I teach in a school where the majority of students have never traveled further than 50 miles away from home. The world they know of is small, however their hearts and generosity are large.

Some of my favorite teaching moments happen when the bell rings to end class and students don't want to put their books down.

I love matching students with books in my classroom library that fit their interests. This project will allow me to add books to my classroom that will engage students who love science, history, sports, and fantasy. The books that I will purchase are varying levels, ensuring that every student in my classroom will have access to books that are at their reading level and will catch their interest.
