My Students

As a teacher in a Title I school, my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

They like to move, they love to read, and they love lots of positive attention.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth, educationally and mentally. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire our deserving learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

My students live in a high poverty area and Christmas time is hard on their families. In this project, I am requesting materials for Christmas presents I can give to each of them during our Christmas party at school.

This holiday season, I want to make sure it is magical and memorable with thoughtful gifts for every child!

Color changing cups are a popular topic right now and I know they will enjoy them. Fifth graders are also into slime and squishy toys, so I know they will absolutely love the Globbie stress balls! They have worked so hard for me already this year and I want them to know that they are loved, appreciated, and an important part of our classroom family. I am excited to make this a December to Remember for my well-deserving students!
