My Students

The students at my school are from a small rural community in northeast Montana. Being in a small community everyone knows everyone and we learn daily from each other.

My students inspire me with their curiosity, creativity and imagination.

In the classroom, we are constantly collaborating and learning from each other. Our work and conversations go beyond just the classroom norms, but we dig into who we are and how we fit in the world around us.

My favorite thing is to see a student who has never expressed an interest in reading come alive with a book. The pleading to give them just a couple more minutes to read the rest of the chapter, well, there is nothing like it.

My Project

At my school, we have the opportunity to give our students a double dose of reading. The programs is called WIN. It is 40 minutes of literacy circles based on ability.

Frontier started the WIN program last year and we have increased reading levels in some students by 2 to 3 grades.

The program WIN, What I Need, is a focus of just that, what each individual student needs.

The group of students that will be reading the Devil's Arithmetic are 5th and 6th graders that require advanced reading challenges to allow for individual critical thinking. This book will stretch their abilities all while giving them a look into one of the "world's most historic events," the holocaust.
