My Students

This year, I am teaching 35 wonderful 6th grade students virtually! Many of the students that I am teaching have chosen remote learning because of medical, family or other sensitive issues that making going to "Face to Face" school difficult. My students are very excited for the school year and have been able to quickly learn to navigate Google Classroom and the online learning!

My students are so excited to make virtual learning a success!

Even though we are online, I want to make this year as fun, enjoyable, engaging and making learning just as important as if they were in face to face school!

My Project

So many things this school year are uncertain, and I want to give my 6th graders the sense of normalcy and stability! It is more important now than ever to ensure that my students have access to wonderful literacy materials!

Please help me give my students a better learning experience from home by providing each of them with an at home copy of "The Finest Hours."

With everyone bonding over a common book, our class with be filled with deep conversations, gaining historical and scientific background knowledge, and building a love for history and literacy!
