My Students

Here at our elementary school, it is more than a school, it's a place where everyone is able to focus on every child's needs.

My third graders are beyond amazing because they are the future of our society.

My students come to school every day ready to learn with smiles on their faces. I love coming to work, and they love coming to school. My classroom is a place of love. Most of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch and live in bilingual households. They are outspoken, humorous, and a joy to be around. They're eager to learn new reading and math skills.

My Project

Everyday we have dull pencils, so my students are in need of a sharpener! Our old pencil sharpener has given up on my students. Sharpen pencils will help my students display and represent their knowledge.We have a limited set of head phones. I would like for my students to all have a pair of headphones to learn with interactive technology. Even with the challenges of not having sharpen pencils, my students strive to learn all concepts. The sharpener and headphones will improve the quality of instruction within our classroom. This contribution will touch the lives of 23 students.
