My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of energy and questions! They thrive on challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! Their energy and excitement to learn is truly amazing!

Eager, enthusiastic, and energetic; my students are ready to jump in to any challenge!

Our school is a Title I school that educates 475 students. Our school provides daily free breakfast and lunch for our students. Most of our students come from single parent homes where they work hard to provide for the basic needs of their children.

Each child in our school absolutely loves learning but teaching must be done with a variety of methods to continue to keep our children engaged. Our school mission is to Motivate Every Student Every Day so different teaching strategies must be used to keep the motivation up! They are truly an amazing group of children!

My Project

With the changes to our schooling due to Covid-19, our students are being asked to complete all assignments while being at home. Our 5th grade students each need a copy of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe to be able to complete the necessary assignments given to them. So many of our students do not have computer access at home, so they desperately need a physical copy of the novel. Without this novel, so many of them will be behind in a world that is so hard to understand right now.
