My Students

My students will be among the very first 4th graders at our school! They are extremely proud to be the leaders on our campus and have made sure that everyone feels welcome when they walk through our doors.

They find joy in working together, creating meaningful projects, and just having fun!

My Project

This will be my first year at a new campus and my first official year of having my own classroom. In addition, this year is the first year we are welcoming 4th grade students onto this campus! That being said, we need a few extra pieces to give students opportunities to spread out in the classroom to do their best focusing during independent and/or group work.

In project-based learning, students often split up into small groups, and these different spaces will provide options for these experiences.

With the help of you all, I hope to create a warm, welcoming, and comfortable space for my students to continue to grow those big beautiful brains.

Thank you in advance for funding this project :) The kids and I appreciate it more than you know.
