My Students

If you are looking for amazing students, come to my class! I am privileged to teach some of the kindest students there are. They are willing to do what it takes to learn and help their peers in the process.

Unfortunately, several of my students have a rough life out of school.

Some don't know where their next meal is going to come from, and others go without proper care due to low income.

By creating room transformations, I am able to help students take a break from 'life' and focus on the tasks at hand. Help me make learning amazing for these awesome students and allow them to put those bad things on hold while they focus on their learning.

My Project

Thanks to wonderful donors, my students were blessed to receive several locks and boxes already. My students get so excited when I tell them we will be doing a breakout! I would like to make our breakouts last longer as well as being more challenging.

By having these breakout supplies, students can participate in fun and engaging lessons or reviews!

Envelopes and sheet protectors can be used around the room to hold special clues as well as incorrect answers to throw the students off. Different types of locks will give me a variety of ways to present materials and clues so that it is not always just numbers.

Breakouts also give students the opportunity to work in groups and collaborate, a skill that will be required of them for a lot of their educational career. Parents also join in on the fun and love witnessing these in action. Thank you for considering this project!
