My Students

My students are athletes, robotics programmers, readers, and students who are interested in health and physical activity. I am also a coach of the baseball team at my school, coach of the Robotics Club, and and the primary 8th grade science teacher at my school.

I am very involved with my school and my students enjoy coming to my class.

They never know what to expect in my classroom as every day is different. The way that I run my class is not so routine. I try to keep it as interesting as possible for them so that I can keep their attention and interest in learning.

My Project

Some of my students love to read and other kids would rather go on the computer. The computer has a purpose, but I want to get all of my kids interested in reading good books that are educational, fun and offer something of real value. Many of my students are below grade level in reading and I want to introduce books to them that they'll look forward to reading and develop their comprehension skills.

I have read the books that I am requesting for my classroom and I know that my students will enjoy them as much as I have!!
