My Students

My second-grade students are part of a Title I building with a diverse population. We come from all walks of life and are working hard to learn about the world around us.

I have an energetic pack of second-grade​ learners who are always eager for new information and experiences.

My students and I are all about hands-on learning. We use a class set of iPads during independent learning times as well as during whole group experiences. Students make use of print resources and hands-on materials across all areas of study. We love having easy access to technology, printed resources, and hands-on experiences.

My Project

We have got such super kids at my school! As a staff,​ we work so hard to get super books into the hands of these super kids! Right now, we are striving to collect 500 brand new books to give to students in our school! During I Love To Read Month, each student gets to pick a brand new book to keep!

The books in this project are some of the favorite titles of my students over the years!

I want the students I have this year to enjoy these great books also. These books will be available for our students to choose from to keep and build up their own personal libraries. I believe the more access to books we have for our kids, the better. I love spreading the joy of reading.

Thank you for considering my students! We love to read!
