My Students

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" -Nelson Mandela

We love learning about different cultures and what makes them unique.

My students are from a variety of backgrounds, many being the first generation to attend school in the US. My students are highly motivated and enjoy learning.

My class prides themselves on being unique. We enjoy learning in a variety of ways. We all understand that there are different types of learners and everyone has their own way of learning and understanding material.

My Project

We would love to have a library that we can utilize. Right now we only have a few books and pillows.

We would love a library rug and new books for our classroom library.

It's important for students to understand how much fun reading can be and reading on a comfy rug would be more enjoyable than on hardwood floors. We are looking to add some new sets of books to our library because there are so many interesting series that have gauged student interest ranging from graphic novels to mystery.

We would love to be able to have a dedicated space to fall in love with a new book!
