My Students

My students are curious, inquisitive, and smart from pre-k to 5th grade. We are a Title I school and we like to give a little extra! Our students come in ready to learn. Even though we have to go into remote learning, the learners get excited when they come to school or get to meet their teacher.

My Project

The learners in my class love to read. We use books a lot for our lessons no matter if its reading, science or math. These books will make the lessons very interesting and a different way to learn even when we have to repeat the same lesson.

Since we will be in remote learning, the students will listen to me read and share the stories on Zoom until it is safe to return back to in-person learning where they can experience these wonderful stories for themselves.

With these books my learners will have assistance in counting, learning where different places are in the world, and how other cultures learn the same way they do.
