My Students

I love my students. My students are the reason why I love teaching. They walk into our classroom every single day with smiles on their faces. They are always eager to start the day. When I ask them, "Who is the best class?"; they reply, "We are!"

I have always let them know that I believe they are capable of doing anything they want.

Despite so many hardships, my students come to class every day and are eager to learn and do their best.

My Project

This project consists of a variety of books to differentiate my student's needs. My students will be able to choose from a variety to books to read during independent reading. The students will also be able to take several books home in their book buddy bags, so that learning is still happening at home.

My students experienced the hurricane Harvey last year and several lost a lot.

I want to make sure that they have something to read at home at all times. I want them to come to school without worries and ready to start the day with all the necessary books needed. Several books will be for whole group read aloud and others for independent and take homes.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Mrs. E.
Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
