My Students

My classroom consists of 23 enthusiastic 3rd graders of varying needs and interests. Our diverse group includes 5 English Language Learners, 8 students with special needs, and students who need access to above and below level curriculum.

We are a family and strive to find success in all that we do.

We practice being proactive, creating a win-win environment, beginning our day with a goal, and synergizing as a team. Activities are diverse and engaging, emphasizing the strength in each student while reinforcing individual needs. We look forward to creating projects that will continue our mission.

My Project

These materials will make a difference not only for my students but the rest of the children at my school. Learning to play soccer will help them become better at working with a team on the field and in the classroom. It will teach them good sportsmanship skills. We have a lot of students from other countries that love to play soccer. This would be a perfect way to build new relationships among students. This equipment would also help students chip away at the required 60 minutes of exercise that they need to achieve on a daily basis. Please help me put a smile on their face with this soccer equipment.
