My Students

How to describe my students? They are incredible, curious, inventive little people who are on track to change the world. They blow me away with their ideas and perspectives on the world. Spending an entire school year with these wonders is indeed a blessing.

My students deserve the very best.

They deserve the best teacher, the best instruction, the best learning environment, and the best materials to actualize their goals. My mission is to be a teacher who not only helps students grow academically, but also socially, and emotionally.

My Project

This couch provides the most flexible, flexible seating options. This couch is not your average, run of the mill couch, it is the stuff teacher’s dreams are made of! The magic of the Nugget is that it can adapt to meet the needs of individual learners. It can be configured in many different positions and comes with pillows that other students can use at the same time. Offering students a comfortable work space fosters our classroom community and makes learning fun! In my opinion it is the most versatile option out there that allows for many students to enjoy it at the same time.

My students were so in love with this couch last year, I'm requesting one more!

They would do anything to be able to work using the Nugget. This project is the one that probably had the most impact on students' attitudes and willingness to work independently and in groups of any I've had funded.
