My Students

I have always been told that my first year of teaching would be the hardest, and boy, did I underestimate the truth to these words. So far, there have been countless late nights filled with planning and grading, weekends that aren’t really weekends, lots of tears and headaches, but I’ve never felt happier and more satisfied in my life doing what I’ve only dreamed of doing for my entire life. I truly find so much joy in teaching my 5th grade littles who have opened my eyes to an entirely different view on education.

My students are extremely hard working and show me how resilient they are every single day.

They all come from low-income homes and many are first-generation students. They come to school every day ready to learn no matter what the circumstances are at home. Much of my planning has to do with finding different ways to build their love for learning, but sometimes this isn’t always an easy task, especially when I’m not given many resources to do so.

My Project

These materials will make a difference in my students' learning in many ways. For instance, the classroom decorations will always have the kids looking forward to seeing all of their work up on bulletin boards. The flexible seating option in the classroom will provide my students with the opportunity of learning in ways that work best for them! I can already picture them asking to sit closer to the board at the lower table in their comfy floor seats. Finally, the ink will give us the opportunity to print student-facing documents right when we need them. They would be nothing more than super ecstatic to come into a classroom that is specifically thought out for them.
