My Students

Thanks to a generous bond issue, our building underwent a vast structural and safety overhaul. Because of this, we have been housed in a temporary building where there are not a lot of luxuries! We were missing our home school and the comforts of our regular classrooms. Luckily, we were able to return in August!

Last year, I had an awesome opportunity to return to primary teaching in 3rd grade!

This is exciting to me because I have worked with this group of students in the past as a substitute, and have had the great pleasure of teaching them again.

Now that I have taken over, we are building our new and improved team with an emphasis on character, compassion, and caring. While we may be a large group this year, our focus is always on improving our achievement, our behavior, and our relationships within our community and world!

My Project

I have chosen to add an interactive reference section to my classroom this year. Students now have available to them encyclopedias, dictionaries, thesauruses, atlases, almanacs, newspapers, and magazines. All of this comes with the increased emphasis on teaching children to think and respond critically by exploring a variety of fiction/nonfiction texts.

I appreciate the world that is opened up by technology.

Students also benefit from the opportunity to hold tangible items that also provide news about the world, business, nature, communities, finance, and so much more! I look forward to seeing them respond to these magazines made just for kids.
