My Students

Teaching is one of the best service careers. Children and families at my school are often overlooked and written off. I am charged to teach my children and prepare them to be productive citizens. Each day I ensure that my kids know they are loved.

Education is the path to success for my children and their families.

My students are encouraged to do their best every day. They have a lot to overcome, but it is not possible. I enjoy teaching and learning. I want to pass my love of education and service on to each of my students.

My Project

I will enter my third year teaching this upcoming school year. My new 3rd graders will need extra reading support. I want to learn as much as I can to support them. The books I have selected will help me learn how to say less so my kids can do more. The books "Supporting Struggling Learners" will give me strategies to help my new students.

I want my students to teach my students to become critical thinkers.

Reading empowers children, once a child feels confident with their reading ability the possibilities are endless. I want my children to excel in all subjects, reading is the gateway that will help them excel.
