My Students

Our rural, remote Title I school is very unique. We have students from different backgrounds, cultures, religions, and races. Some students are learning English for the very first time. Some students are very talented when it comes to learning, some require special education, and some students are working their hardest to give their best. Each morning students greet us and each other with high-fives and hugs. We are truly blessed by the relationships that are built within our tiny community. Our students are the builders of tomorrow: the teachers, scientists, farmers, mothers, fathers, doctors, engineers, dreamers, and doers.

Seeing students engaged and deeply involved in their own education is a great joy to me.

I strive to provide hands-on learning experiences in a safe environment, where students are free to explore, make real-world connections, and see their knowledge grow and expand! Knowing that failing is a step towards success relieves our students from being fearful to try, and great things happen because of their growth mindset!

My Project

This year, we are focusing on moving towards project based learning and our classroom MakerSpace is full of supplies to make this happen. Our only problem is the organization of it. We are lacking a sound way to keep our supplies in a readily accessible place that is organized and where everything has its own home.

With this project, students will be able to organize their supplies in easy to see bins and tubs, so they can easily access the materials they are looking for.

The Tot Tutors Kids' Toy Storage Organizer with 12 Plastic Bins is perfect for cardboard rolls, styrofoam balls, coloring mediums, glue, wood pieces, tools, and other supplies students will be using daily to create in our classroom. The Tot Tutors Kids' Store-All Unit has a pull out unit that they can use for storing our cardboard pieces or scrap fabrics. The bins on top will be perfect for our scrapbook and construction paper, or whatever else my students see fit to put there.

Students will love being able to organize their project based learning area in a way that makes sense to them. Please help me provide these needed storage solutions for my students, so they have "A Place for Everything."
