My Students

My students are fourth graders who come to school ready and excited to learn. My students and I work hard to achieve their academic goals. They need a positive, comforting environment in which to succeed.

I teach at a rural Title I school near a military base, where 100% of the students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of the students have a military connection, or are from a low-income household. Regardless of where they come from, every child deserves to feel a sense of belonging at school.

"Every child deserves a champion; an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be." -Rita F. Pierson

My Project

Students perform better in an environment that is comfortable, welcoming, and organized. To make this a reality, my students need a futon to create a cozy reading corner, stools for seating at our group table, and a literature organizer to keep all of their work tidy and sorted. I am moving to a new school this year and will be teaching a wonderful group of fourth graders that are eager to learn. Our current small group table has no seating, so students will have to drag the chairs from their desks with them every time they need to come to the table. This is an unnecessary distraction that can be solved with dedicated stools for the table. A futon for the book corner will make reading a relaxing and enjoyable activity.

My goal is to create a classroom where my students feel free to express themselves and achieve to their highest potential.

Please help me to create a classroom that will help students reach their goals.
