My Students

The heart of my library and my classroom is my students. Every day I have the privilege of sneaking a peek into the future by working with future doctors, lawyers, presidents, artists, chefs, and homemakers. I get to work with tomorrow's legends on the baseball, soccer, and football fields, too!

My incredibly talented and smart students are in grades PreK to 2, speak several languages, and represent the diversity in our country.

They speak English, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, Russian, German, and Chinese. In addition to being their school librarian, I get to work with students needing literacy intervention and enrichment.

I see students in 45-minute or one-hour groups during the pull-out intervention and enrichment blocks for RTI (Response-to-Intervention) and ESL classes. I am the new school librarian and sponsor several of my school's​ clubs for my students such as Drama, Running, and Random Acts of Kindness Clubs.

My students love learning to read, engaging in STEM activities, and showing their creativity like many of the famous artists we study. More time spent engaged with enjoyable literacy tasks that are matched to their individual learning needs is key to their academic success.

My Project

Students in library, enrichment, and ESL are going to be learning about the life cycle of chickens and life on the farm as part of a Wild Robot Escapes unit of study. They will be learning all about chickens, other animals, and plants on the farm that Roz, the wild robot, encounters during his journey.

This project will provide students with access to small animals to use in their diorama creation, a hydroponic gardening system to grow food, and books about farm animals.

Students need access to hands-on learning materials and this project will help me provide them with manipulatives that can be used to help them gain a deeper understanding of the concepts we are learning about together.
