My Students

My students come into class each day full of life and a love for learning. I want that positive attitude to carry on throughout their life. I want my students to feel like they can do anything and be anything if they choose to!

I teach at a Title 1 school in Minnesota where over 50% of our students receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch.

Many students also receive our backpack buddy food program for the weekend. Even with so many trials and tribulations, these kids want to please. They are excited to learn, do their best, and have fun along the way.

My Project

My classroom is filled with students from diverse social and economic backgrounds. I work with students with different motivation for engaging in learning, behaving positively, and performing academically. Social and emotional learning (SEL) provides a foundation for safe and positive learning, and enhances students' ability to succeed in school, careers, and life. These books will help my students connect with characters and kids their age in appropriate scenarios that they encounter on a day to day basis.

My students will use these books to learn about kindness, sharing, friendship building, working together, perseverance, and empathy.

I believe these books will help my students become successful both in and out of the classroom.
