My Students

I have been fulfilling my lifelong ambition of teaching and inspiring children for over 12 years. My passion is to help my students reach their potential and, in doing so, discover the joy of learning.

I have the opportunity to teach 30 unique students at a public school.

My school is a K-8, Title I school, where all of the students receive free breakfast and lunch and come from low-income families. My school encourages a diverse approach to learning that inspires each student to learn, achieve, and remain committed to high standards in all content areas.

My Project

For this project I am requesting supplies that I feel will benefit my third grade students. I would love to get a scissor caddy to store our scissors. They will use the scissors to cut out word sorts during the Daily 5 Literacy Block. This center will be a nice addition to our class. I would also like to replenish our supply of construction paper so we can complete fun and colorful art projects. In addition, the game "I Have, Who Has" will be an exciting and engaging way to reinforce Parts of Speech.

With your support, my third grade students can have the supplies necessary to learn and succeed!
