My Students

My students walk into my class every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I love to challenge them and see their faces when they achieve what they thought that they couldn't. Each day I want them to know how smart they are and that I believe in them.

I teach at a Title I school in Georgia, and we are CHAMPIONS!

Despite setbacks and hardships, my students come to class eager to do their best and achieve greatness. I love them and want to get the best things possible for them!

My Project

This series of 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 to browse through and choose the right book for them. All of the books in my library have been chosen with my students in mind. I have watched them the last two weeks to see what types of books they have enjoyed. I have a few of the "Who Is/Was" books and the students are reading them quickly and I have a waitlist for who gets the books next. The excitement for reading is so awesome and I am excited to be able to provide more of this series for the students to enjoy. A lot of the books that I have chosen will reinforce the social studies curriculum.
