My Students

I teach middle school Language Arts at a small public charter school in northern Minnesota. My students come from various different backgrounds, and many come from nearby Indian Reservations.

My students are amazing and each one has a unique story.

Because I work in a charter school our class sizes are small and I have the opportunity to get to know each student personally. This helps me have a better understanding of them when planning my lessons and helps me recommend books that would interest them.

My Project

Students at Voyageurs Expeditionary School will use this VersaTile kit to promote a fun and screen free way to improve upon their literacy skills in small group instruction.

The VersaTile kit provides a self-checking answer system to create a safe learning experience to increase student's self-confidence.

I will use the VersaTile kit in my Title I reading class where I do a lot of different stations for students to be engaged in many different types of lessons such as: vocabulary, comprehension skills, informational text and fluency.

I am always looking for creative ways to incorporate fun learning for students. The Versa System is aligned to the state standards so I can make sure that I am can seamlessly integrating skills practice into my reading routine.
