My Students

My class consists of 30 amazing individuals ready to take ELA by storm. My students always complete daily assignments in a timely manner. They consistently use personal best effort on a daily basis and complete work with quality in mind. They are self-motivated workers and I am so happy to have them in my classroom this year. What I love is their passion to learn and the dedication to improve in all areas. Everyday they come in with such a positive attitude that if you were having a bad day their energy would turn that frown right upside down.

My Project

These materials will help shape and stimulate the youths mind in order to succeed. I will use the tools on a daily basis to grow their knowledge and comprehension throughout the school year. The books that I have selected will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students relax and enjoy while I read on the carpet to them. The books will make a difference for my guided reading practices while they complete work. as well as read independently! Imagine knowing that you were part of a small seed that was planted that will grow forever.
