My Students

Our classroom is full of open-minded global citizens who are motivated to make a positive impact on their world.

We are a diverse group in culture, race and socioeconomic status, with over half of our students receiving free and reduced lunch.

We are a part of a learning environment where students build a strong community within the walls of the school by having daily community meetings, sharing our hopes and our genius, practicing empathy, giving each other hope and showing respect and responsibility daily. As second graders, our students realize that they have a leadership role to uphold. We work to find our voice through reading various texts. We work to find our voices by writing and sharing our thoughts in written form and in conversation/discussion. Students are given choice in almost everything that we do so that they might feel ownership of their learning. They are empowered learners. Our students are the teachers. Their voices are changing the world.

My Project

My students will have a new excitement for reading when they see new books in the library that spark their individual interests! Many students are below grade-level when it comes to literacy.

By acquiring more current books that get students excited to read, they will learn and grow as independent readers.

They will become more confident in their literacy skills. This is essential for their educational growth. My goal is to provide new books for every child in my classroom to take home and read with their loved ones.

My leveled library is limited. Although many books are old and are from any donations I could take or any books I could afford to purchase, students still find a way to smile when they pick up any book they choose to take home. With hope in their eyes they ask, "Could we get more Little Mouse series, and Who Was... books?" My response is always "of course!" I am dedicated to finding a way to make these student's literary dreams a possibility!
