My Students

My classroom consists of 24 independent, unique, and motivated 4th graders. As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty district, my students are faced with many problems in and out of the classroom. Despite these difficult challenges, I hope to give my students a positive, creative, and meaningful classroom in which they can feel comfortable to be their best. I cannot control their home lives, or what they experience outside of the classroom, but I can control the experience they have within our school and hope to inspire them.

My classroom contains students with a mix of interests, abilities, and goals.

We are working to build a classroom community where we can work, learn, and grow together as scholars and as individuals. I know every student in my classroom has the ability to succeed and will do my best to help them strive towards greatness everyday.

My Project

Our classroom needs an easel so we can create and display anchor charts that will help remind students of their learning. Anchor charts are an important part of daily instruction, because they can be referred back to all year long and remind students of current and previous lessons. We will use our easel during whole group lessons and review. Many of my students are visual learners and need these anchor charts to refer back to.

Your generous donation will help my students maintain the concepts they've learned throughout the whole year.

Your donation will go to a dry-erase easel that we can use to create our anchor charts and use for quick reviews of previous lessons.
