My Students

My students are bright and eager to challenge their minds. They look forward to coming to school to learn something new every day. They love to read and talk about what they learn. I have a very diverse class and it's great to see my students learning from each other regardless of race, gender, ethnicity and social class. These students deserve the opportunity to expand their knowledge.

Thank you for taking the time to support these wonderful children.

We appreciate any support you can provide.

My Project

Having a class set of writing folders will allow my students to see the full writing process. The folders have four sections, a place for their pre-writing, drafting, revising, and editing. The students will see each part of the writing process by placing their papers in each one of the corresponding folders.

My students will use the CD player in their listening center while seating in the new comfy floor seat the opportunity to practice their new learning concepts online.

The store and charge center will teach students the responsibility of returning their materials. It also allows us to keep our current technology charged and ready for use.
