My Students

Kind, smart, and loving are a few words that I would use to describe the students in my classroom. My first, second, and third grade classroom is a safe haven for my amazing students with a wide variety of abilities that require individualized academic programs. My students work their hardest every day to improve on social, emotional, physical, and academic needs. My students need high-interest activities with repeated exposure to be most successful. Please consider donating to my well-deserving students.

My Project

My students work hard throughout the day, but often get breaks that help them refocus and recharge. To make these breaks meaningful and relaxing, STEM architect building programs would not only be engaging but inspiring for all. There are also sensory materials that would be beneficial in our sensory station that my wonderful students can use for many years to come. I am a firm believer in teaching children to be mindful and to use self-awareness, and I believe these sensory items will help my students to reach their goals. Thank you for your donation considerations. It is greatly appreciated.
