My Students

My students are capable learners with identified learning challenges. I believe it's important to provide varied opportunities and an attractive and interactive learning environment so that all students may experience success. Our building has 100% of our students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunches. Students are accepted and valued for the many strengths and characteristics they bring to my classroom.

I also believe it takes many to partner and help these young people reach their goals and fulfill their dreams for the future!

My Project

Many materials that you might expect to be readily available to the classroom teacher are not. My classroom needs copy paper and colored ink to produce differentiated materials for the four grade levels I teach. I want my students to have an exciting educational experience, which makes them look forward to each day. They love to learn with colorful and exciting literacy and math materials. (Who wouldn't?) With these products I will be able to produce literacy and math activities that are both appealing and educational. These activities will continue to help me engage my students in learning.

All children deserve up-to-date text books and materials.

I purchase and provide a variety of the educational activities I utilize. My lessons are differentiated and based upon the needs of my individual students. Therefore, I make copies based on the number of students who will be introduced to a particular grade level skill. I also utilize a variety of hands on activities, including educational games, to instruct.

Colorful teaching materials will help me engage my students in their day to day learning.

Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
