My Students

My students are curious, avid learners who love to explore and use their imaginations! Many come from homes that do not give them the opportunity to have regular access to books and tools for learning. The only time they have the chance to access books and learning tools is through my classroom. I want to make our classroom the best learning environment possible for these kids! Please join me in the adventures of teaching by funding our classroom so we can reach all students!

My Project

What’s something that’s always taken for granted? You guessed it! Storage, storage, storage! Okay, so maybe that wasn’t the first idea to pop into your mind, but for this first year teacher, it’s my reality and continuous struggle! With my ever-growing classroom library (which is an amazing problem to have!), I am running out of room to store my books and supplies! I’m hoping new, kid-friendly book bins will benefit my classroom. My library is the one area of my room that is used daily! It needs to be easy to use, clean, and organized to help promote reading and the love for books! Please help set my classroom and students up for success!!
