My Students

My students are energetic, positive, and enthusiastic learners. They bring smiles into our classroom each day that are contagious and that make our learning environment one that is so fun to be a part of! Each of them care for each other as if we are a family. They enjoy working together to accomplish both classroom and individual goals that are set. Watching the learning take place in our classroom is my greatest joy as their teacher. I enjoy being able to teach them and watch them grow!

My Project

This is a project for colored paper!

I love to create activities that brighten up the learning in our classroom!

In my classroom I use colored paper for projects, newsletters, and important parent communication. I also like to use colored paper to create games for group work. These games are laminated and are able to be reused but help students to stay focused. It is also amazing how brighter paper makes the learning so much more fun and engaging for students! They are also able to use these bright colors to create projects that are not only educational, but that they are proud of because of how beautiful they are!

Help make our learning brighter!
