My Students

I teach ELA and social studies to two classes of fourth graders who are eager to learn. My classroom is not just a place to learn, it is also a place where my students discover that they are able to change the world through the choices and decisions they make in their lives.

The majority of students at my school receive free or reduced-price lunch, meaning they qualify for at least part, if not all, of the cost of their meals to be paid for by the district due to low parent income at home.

Many of my students come from low-income​ homes and this can negatively impact their ability to learn successfully.

My students come to school wanting to learn with positive attitudes about school, no matter what is going on in their lives. They are hard workers who want to do good things with their lives and they know it starts here in the classroom.

My Project

Each year I try to bring as many different genres of novels as possible to my students. We have covered all the main genres, but finding an interesting fantasy novel is sometimes difficult. This genre is very hard to get kids into because it requires so much stretching of the imagination to really fall into a story that is completely impossible to believe (or is it??). Getting kids to enjoy this genre is hard, but SO MUCH FUN when you finally get them to buy into it and learn to love it.

The Harry Potter series helps to bring the fantasy genre to life, and what better way to suck them all in than to read the first book in the series together as a class?!?

Introducing this series of books to my students is bringing it to a new generation (who have most likely only seen the movies, and let's be honest, books are ALWAYS better), and really helps to bring the fantasy genre to life.

I have two classes of students and I would LOVE the chance to GIVE each student their own copy of this novel to not only share my LOVE of Harry Potter, but to provide them with a great novel they can read over and over again at home.
