My Students

My students are young, energetic, hard working good kids that are ready to make the world a better place!

They are the future and the future looks bright!

In our classroom we have a caring community that helps each other so everyone can experience some form of success. All for one and one for all!

Caring children become caring adults. Caring adults will make the world a better one for all! Investing in my kids will show them that good people are indeed out there and that we all should pay it forward when possible.

My Project

My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy-I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! A new carpet is very inviting and floor seats which my kids have never seen before will make it easy for them to try as they read independently for fun and learning. They will use these items whenever they finish assignments or when they need a quiet area to study for A.R. testing.

A comfortable student is more likely to continue reading which will help in all subject areas.

That will make them better rounded students.

This will be a great time to introduce classic literature which they will surely enjoy more in a comfortable setting.
