My Students

Determined, courageous, inspirational, and hardworking are great describers for my students. My students love books and technology as their modality to access literature in order to advance their literacy development.

My students are amazingly resilient, joyful children who diligently strive to improve their reading ability.

My students fall into the intensive support category signifying their need to receive small group instruction from myself, the Title I reading specialist. My students arrive at the reading table ready to try their best to become better readers.

My Project

This project is trying to provide a copy of the book, I Wish You More, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal to every family in grades K-3.

We are initiating a Academic Parent Teacher Team based on developing a Growth Mindset in our students and families.

I Wish You More focuses on the will of success, the positive over the negative. Our Teachers, parents and students in grades K to 3 will work together to develop the students' academic skills through workshops targeting fun strategies, games and methods to build academic success. We will use the I Wish You More theme of a growth mindset to help install the desire to achieve academic success.
