My Students

I am lucky enough to teach 25 adorable, and hardworking fourth graders. My students come from diverse ethnic and financial backgrounds, but they all come to learn.

My classroom is designed around my students, and it is truly all about them.

I designed my classroom around my students, and this novel coronavirus is helping me better meet their health needs by truly thinking outside the box.

My students are treated as little humans who can make their own decisions when it comes to learning, including decisions about the physical environment in which they learn best. I have high expectations and set individualized goals for each student.

While one student is working on mastering grade-level curriculum, another is being challenged at their own level and working on a fourth-grade educational experience. Please help me on my journey to do this by supporting our project! This project is for our entire school! Every virtual kindergartner, first, and second grader!! Many of my students siblings are in these grades and in need of books!

My Project

This is an unprecedented time in education! COVID-19 has forced each classroom to be partially or fully virtual! This has brought us many new challenges, including a lack of tangible teaching materials. Books are in short supply and many of our virtual kiddos are home because of valid family health concerns or the child's own health issues so libraries are truly off limits. These kiddos all report the same thing when I asked, they miss the smell, the touch of real books. The sound of the pages turning!

Please help me give each kiddo in our school in kindergarten, first, and second grade virtual classrooms a chance to have a real brand new book to read each way to help their learn their best while stuck at home!

They miss so many things about school, but this is one we can easily fix! These students should still be reading a book of their choosing for at least 20 minutes a day, please help me to make this happen by providing them all with a set of books to read of their very own!
