My students are self-motivated to learn anything about everything! They question constantly to seek answers but also question those answers. They form opinions based on new learning and love to look for evidence. They are inspired daily to be better people from their families, friends, classmates, and school. The students in my class are driven to succeed and work hard to be the best that they can be. They are a joy and pleasure to work with and learn from. I team with other teachers and now can count over 90 students as my mine. They all work well together and love switching classes to experience different teachers and different class configurations.
My students love to read. Many have read most of the books you will find at the local book store. This book as a novel study will provide them with novelty as well as an appreciation for the lives they are leaving. As a class, we will read it and discuss life in Africa for two children approximately their age. Reading the same book will allow them to have a dialogue that they are all familiar with and can share ideas about. They will also connect to the various themes presented in the book such as perseverance and bravery. For those who don't read as much, they will be engaged in a conversation that is important and they will become for mindful of the world around them.
