My Students

The Mississippi Gulf Coast is a vibrant, eclectic area full of history, hospitality, and of my favorite--awesome children! My classroom is home to boys and girls of all socioeconomic backgrounds. Many of my students receive free or reduced lunch. Being located so close to different military bases, I have the privilege to work with military families who are being stationed here for the time being.

The most important thing about my students is that they are so in love with learning and are always so excited about new activities I have planned for them.

You can't teach enthusiasm, and boy are they full of it! I work hard to keep them engaged and offer chances for them to work alone, with peers, or in small groups with me.

My Project

In 2nd grade, one of our standards is to compare books by the same author. The author study I do is on Roald Dahl. You may know him - he wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, and The Fanstastic Mr. Fox. These are all titles we read. Having a class set makes the author study run smoothly since all students are able to have a copy in their hands.

My students are at the age when reading a chapter book is such a big deal.

I love watching their faces when we finish a book together. They feel so accomplished, which in turn makes me feel accomplished.
