My Students

We have the best (I may be biased here) students around. I say this because they are engaged learners who are always willing to try whatever new thing their crazy teacher has decided to try and they do it with a smile on their face. I am so proud of all that they accomplish, but I am also pretty proud of them when they try something new and fail but still manage to hop up and try it again. This generation is the leadership of our future and I have faith that they will indeed be great leaders.

Our school is a TK-6 public elementary school located in a small, rural, corner of the Ojai Valley.

We are surrounded by citrus fields and majestic mountains providing a perfect backdrop for environmental education and art. We create a solid foundation for the core subjects, but build our curriculum to meet the needs of the whole child.

Students at our school build relationships with one another, their teachers and the community around them. They learn responsible citizenship and compassion in a safe and nurturing environment.

My Project

Helping students learn how to read and decipher news sources is a priority. Time for kids engages students wiyh exciting and relevant news stories that make learning fun. With history unfolding all around us, I want to make sure my students have access to reliable sources.

I have used TIME for Kids in my classroom the last 5 years and find it to be the best classroom news source.

In addition to being fun and engaging, it has also helped my students improve their language arts scores. It is an all-around great tool that will keep my kids reaching the stars!
