My Students

My student are eager to learn. They are so excited to be able to learn in such a wonderful safe place. Our school believes that we as a community can make our students, our future the best that they can be.

These students have the ability to be anything they desire.

Sometimes they just have so many things going against them it is hard for them to see their true potential. They are sweet and genuine people who deserve only the best out of life.

My Project

Students will get the ability to take their learning to the next level with the giant poster paper. Students like the opportunity to work in groups. Students learn the most through collaboration and reflection. Unfortunately, materials like giant poster paper are not readily available to teachers. By purchasing these materials students are given the ability to work in collaborative groups discussing topics and sharing their thought and ideas on paper. I am then able to display student work and students can share their knowledge. This paper gives my students the opportunity to enhance their learning. The cart will allow me a place to store all the materials students need to use the poser paper.
