My Students

Thank you so much for stopping by! My students are wonderful! I teach a unique group of middle schoolers who are beyond creative! My students are passionate about the world and are invested in having their voice heard.

All of my students are unique and come from diverse backgrounds and experiences.

They are curious about the world and want to grow and know how to be the best global citizen they can be. They love to learn and flourish when given the opportunity for new experiences.

My Project

I want to give my students the gift of the love for reading! I want to spark their interest with classics like Charlotte's Web and the Giver. Highly engaging books can often be the gateway to increasing interest in reading for struggling readers. I want to ensure that each student in my class has their own book to add to their personal home library. Many times reading only happens in the classroom setting and I want to promote reading as an essential part of the development by helping students start their own personal libraries at home. We can make this happen! One book at a time!
