My Students

I teach a terrific, high energy group of fourth-graders in northern California. Some of them come from very low-income large families and some are even homeless. But it really doesn't matter where they come from, it matters where they are going. My goal is to provide a safe, fun, and creative learning environment where my students will take chances and learn from their mistakes. I want my students to enjoy school and fall in love with reading and math this year. Since they are all energetic and like to move around, I would love to give them an opportunity to focus, learn, and

My Project

There are lots of different tools that we, teachers, like to use in our classrooms on a regular basis, and to me, having a set of versatile dry-erase clipboards is a must!

These helpful tools will keep my students moving and learning inside and outside the classroom in all subject areas.

As a special bonus, these particular set of dry erase clipboards comes with pen holders and markers. With limited space in student desks, we will be able to store them in the magazine holders attached to the wall. These dry erase clipboards will definitely be a hit with my students!
