My Students

Our smart and engaging students are interested in expanded opportunities. They want to explore their ideas with hands-on projects that allow them to develop and solve problems in a way that reflects the nature of such context in real life. Our students only see possibilities in the world despite the many obstacles they face outside the classroom. Our students are bright, engaging, clever and believe in themselves. As their teacher, I am committed to providing them with unlimited opportunities to have fun.

My Project

It is getting near the end of the year and we are running out of some of our most basic supplies.

I've been scaling my students back on their use of paper to conserve what we have till the end of the year.

We are also in need of new storage baskets for our markers and pastels. Many of ours have been loved for a long time and are falling apart. Our yarn supply comes from donations and most of it is tangled and hard for the kids to use on their own. I spend a lot of my class time untangling yarn so the kids can cut it themselves. Having a yarn winder would help us keep these supplies orderly and easier for the kids to use. My older students want to use colored pencils but we don't have a way to sharpen them and our supply is small. Having a sharpener at each table would eliminate movement around our tiny room and give my students more work time.
