My Students

My students are explorers in and out of the classroom, taking on each challenge they face with ingenuity, imagination, and determination.

In front of me every day, sit future scientists, engineers, doctors, teachers and some are going to take on vocations that do not even exist yet.

My students are lifelong learners. They are growing and learning in the same small, tight knit, school community that inspired me to be a teacher. They are part of a school that offers them small class sizes and an individualized education. They are an inspiration to me and those around them and I want to give them the opportunity to discover what they can truly do with their education and future! I am excited to see where they go!

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy-I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level.

They will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word.
