My Students

If you are looking for amazing students, come to my class! I am privileged to teach some of the kindest students there are. They are willing to do what it takes to learn and help their peers in the process.

Unfortunately, several of my students have rough lives outside of school.

Some don't know where their next meal is going to come from, and others go without proper care due to low income. By creating room transformations, I am able to help students take a break from life and focus on the tasks at hand. Help me make learning amazing for these awesome students and allow them to put those bad things on hold while they focus on their learning.

My Project

We love doing hands-on learning in my class! We are always using poster boards for activities. Creating grids for our coding robots, presenting things we have researched, and working on STEM projects.

The more project-based learning you have, the more materials you need to continue them!

Students are also always collaborating together, playing games, and working on math facts using their dry erase markers on all of our dry erase surfaces around the room. These markers, poster boards, and hooks(for organization and storage) would make a great asset to our classroom!
