My Students

I teach in a wonderful suburban school in the southern United States. We are a Title I school which strives to not only meet the standards, but to exceed them and enrich learning.

My students enter the class every day with lots of energy and an enthusiasm for learning.

The best way to describe this class is rambunctious and bright. Students like to move around the room, sit on the floor, sit in the bouncy chairs, or stand at our stand up desks. Others may walk in and see chaos, but I see the joy of learning all around me.

These students love to go beyond the normal curriculum and need enrichment. It doesn't matter if we are talking about Space, Weather, or the Constitution, they are like sponges and want to soak up MORE and MORE.

My Project

Do you remember reading about the American Revolution in school? You probably wondered why in the world you had to learn about the events that happened more than 200 years ago...

Luckily, I found a book that makes this time in history come alive with real characters and funny stories about their lives and how they changed our world.

King George: What WAS He Thinking? Everything Your Schoolbooks didn't tell you about the American Revolution is THAT book! It is the book my students will not want to put down! Steve Sheinkin is a great author who has done his research well. The book chronicles the events of the revolution but gives valuable insights into the characters and makes them believable and relatable for 5th graders. A class set of these books is just what I need to bring history alive and keep my students reading every day.
