My Students

My students are my "why". They are the reason why I look forward to coming to school each day and they are the reason why I give 100% of myself to ensure they love learning.

Education is my passion and my mission is to provide all of my students with the opportunity to share that passion with me.

My students look forward to coming to school and are excited to see the exciting topics that we are going to explore next.

My Project

I would like to provide my students with a space to achieve success. This project would allow me to create a comfortable and engaging small-group environment. Wobble chairs allow students to wiggle while they learn, in a comfortable and safe way. The chairs are easy for students to move around the room, which makes our classroom environment more flexible and serves the needs of all students.

A small-group teaching easel would allow me to demonstrate lessons while working closely with my students.

The easel has a whiteboard and is magnetic, which makes it a perfect tool to give students hands-on lessons.
