My Students

The children at my school absolutely love learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best varies greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! I aim to create a positive environment for students to help foster their creativity and encourage their curiosity. I am so excited to meet my new students, as I know they will be truly incredible and eager to learn!

My Project

The materials, I am requesting for my students, will make lasting impacts on their education! I am asking for two different sets of books for my classroom library. These books will help broaden my students reading horizons and get them excited about learning! Currently, the book selection in my room is scarce. The new books will feature characters that look like them and allow them to gain meaningful background knowledge about the content we are learning in the classroom. I am also requesting name plates for my students desks. These nameplates feature an alphabet and hundreds chart which serve as a great visual support for my second graders.
