My Students

"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character, that is the goal of true education." -Martin Luther King Jr.

That is our goal here at our school and as a staff, we strive to teach both the importance of education and character.

You will find children from all walks of life, some that have it all and some that have lives that would break your heart. Something that brings them all together is our school, and I have found, for some, it is their safe haven. I love the enthusiasm they all have for learning, and they love to discover new things.

One hundred percent of our school's children receive free lunch. We also are bordered with a reservation and have farms all around our rural area. As you can imagine, we are a very diverse school with many cultures that flow through our halls. It is a great place to work, and the children are incredible kids to teach. I love my job!

My Project

In my class every year the main incentive I give my students to do well, work hard, treat others kindly, and following rules is by paying them with class bucks. Through out the day they might have to pay me to go to the bathroom, or if they are breaking rules they might have to pay big, but money is coming in and out of the their money bags that they are in charge of keeping track of.

At the end of the trimester they get to spend what they have earned at our grand school store.

As you can imagine it is anticipated all trimester and I make sure that there is something great for everyone! I am asking for your help in getting a couple of big ticket items for our store, Pillow Pets! Kids love them and they are willing to spend big money for them!

In the past I have ordered dollars, but I have found they are pretty spendy after having to renew them every year, so I asking for your help in getting ink so I can print them.
