We have hardworking, engaged, rock star learners! They each uniquely contribute to our classroom and school community in such positive ways. Our students come from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds, a majority are considered low-income, as well as a high percentage of English Language Learners.
Our students are high energy readers, writers, scientists, mathematicians, and crazy awesome leaders and innovators!
Our school and district culture places a large emphasis on teaching to the whole child, meeting students' needs in all ways, so that they can be socially, emotionally and academically prepared for anything they can dream of for the future lives, including college and vocational opportunities.
I work with all students in the building as a collaborative teacher. I am honored to rotate co-teaching in classrooms with amazing educators and get to know all learners in our building from Kindergarten through 5th Grade classrooms.
These mentor texts will be used in classrooms across the building, integrating into core content areas such as social emotional learning, writing, reading, social studies and more! Our students deserve books that represent them in many beautiful ways. Stories that have children that look like them, legends that have achieved greatness that represent them, accounts of history that represent diverse stakeholders and perspectives, current day stories that inspire, instill hope, persistence, and make them laugh, representation across diverse occupations. Stories with people our students, staff and community can relate to and with. Representation matters. Thank you for being a part of this important work and building goal to create libraries that will support intentional instruction, exploration, learning and growth!
