My Students

My third grade classroom consists of 25 amazing students who are kind, supportive, hard-working, creative and enthusiastic!

Every student in my class has their own unique voice and interests.

By getting to know my students as learners, but also as individuals has helped us create a family like atmosphere within our classroom.

We believe in having a growth mindset! Each student strives to do their personal best each day. We believe "things won't always be awesome, but our response can be!"

My Project

I would love to be able to give back to my students this Christmas. My students love reading, but not all students have access to fun & interesting books of their own at home. Studies show that "the more types of reading materials there are in the home, the higher students are in reading proficiency." - National Education Association

"One of the best ways to develop children's literacy is to encourage kids to read at home" -Reading Is Fundamental

Your donation of these books will help promote children's literacy and bring books into their homes! A simple gift that will have a extraordinary impact!
