My Students

My students are great kids with much energy. I hope they enjoy coming to school as much as I do. I have been teaching for over 14 years and have four children of my own. I want only the best for my children, as well as my students.

One goal I have for the 2019-2020 school year is to help keep them motivated to learn and enjoy our time together.

I teach ELA and social studies to 71 amazing students. I want our classroom to be fun and exciting. Most of the projects posted are both teacher and student-driven. We spend so much time together learning and working hard and want the best classroom environment!

My Project

After completing our N.Y.S. social studies inquiry, the students are going to spend a day competing in our very own Olympic Games. Students will be divided into mixed-class teams. (Brazil – Italy – Canada – Japan – Kenya)

The Day of Olympics will consist of an Opening Ceremony.

Each team will present an opening ceremony consisting of a dance/cheer and song. The opening ceremony should display the culture of the team and show SPORTSMANSHIP.

Teams will parade around the school with marching music and display poster, flag, hats and mascot. The students will

"Pass the Torch" around the school to start the games.
