My Students

In my class, every student is special and unique. I've taken joy in being a part of a special school community where students, families, and teachers all work together to give our students a strong social, emotional and academic foundation. We all have the same goal in mind: to cultivate a nurturing environment in which we are committed to challenging each student to meet his/her optimal potential academically, socially, and emotionally by respecting, appreciating and challenging students in a caring community, while building a sense of responsibility and respect.

I teach 5th grade ICT.

Mys students really take pride in their classroom and learning.

My Project

I am asking for general cleaning supplies so I can help keep my classroom clean and germ-free.

I have asked for Method products because they are all-natural and contain no harsh chemicals.

In an effort to reduce the spread of germs and viruses I use these cleaning supplies to wipe students desks down daily. Method products are also safer to use around students with allergies and asthma. I am asking for hand soap and hand sanitizer because I feel it is important that students learn basic hygiene to help prevent colds and flu viruses.

I am also asking for a broom so the students can also help keep our classroom floor clean.
