Meet the Admin at TCE

What a great night at TCE. Parents had the opportunity to come out and meet our new administration at Taylors Creek. I loved being able to catch up with my colleagues and see the smiles of my old students as they told me about their summer adventures. One student even brought me a gift from the beach. Looking forward to a great school year!

Students Reaching 100 AR Points!

I can't believe this school year is almost over! My little 2nd graders are almost 3rd graders. Time surely does fly by when you are having fun. Well I'm happy to report that I have some amazing readers in my classroom. Some have even hit the 100 AR point club. The incentive in my room for reaching a 100 AR points is getting any book your heart desires on the teacher. So far I have 3 students who have reached 100 AR points. That meant I got to go shopping for books! :)

I am so happy that my students love to read because this teacher loves reading too!
Congrats Kavian, DaiJour, and Alysia for reaching 100 AR Points! Way to Go!

Congrats DaiJour!
Congrats Alecia!

Congrats Kavian!

"Keep reading because it will take you places you never imagined!
