My Students

First grade students are the absolute best to teach! They are kind, empathetic and super hard working! Our goal or motto of our classroom is to show each other "mutual respect," which means that we each other how WE want to be treated. To achieve this, we show empathy and care towards each other inside and outside the classroom. Through this, we build an amazing, nurturing classroom community that extends to our own personal lives.

My school is an inclusion school and I am an inclusion teacher.

We have students who are auditory impaired, learning disabled and other areas of students with special needs. It is these students who make our classroom community a better, more involved one. It is so important for students be in an environment where they experience and work with students who may be different from them.

My Project

First grade is important because my students are just learning how to read and write! Teaching little ones to read and write requires lots and lots of resources! This includes centers, content centered activities and many opportunities to read! These donations will help me support my students to the best of my abilities!! Working at a public school, teacher resources are scarce, many of my materials are paid out of my pocket. Unfortunately this cost can add up and I often to rely or create other alternatives. Having a working printer will provide a better learning experience for my students. My goal each day is try and listen to every one of my students read! Well, of course, it doesn't happen, having reading phones will provide an extra support so that the students can hear themselves read which will increase their ability.
