My students are unique, witty, and enthusiastic! They meet every challenge head-on. They love hands-on, engaging projects and activities that enable them to think critically about the topic they are learning as well as grow academically and personally. Our class motto is, "If it doesn't change you, it doesn't challenge you." My students take that to heart and have an amazing capacity to love and support each other. I am grateful everyday to be their teacher!
Our school is in north east Texas and although a lot of our needs are met, there are still supplies and/or resources our district cannot provide.
Although they all learn in different ways and at their own pace, each of my students gives their best effort no matter what. In an effort to develop 21st century learners, my students engage in a variety of learning strategies and collaborative projects each day to provide as much individualized attention as possible.
I believe that a calming environment increases student productivity but I need your help to create one in my classroom! I will place the rugs and lamps in the back of the classroom and use them to provide flexible seating options, lesson intervention/extension areas, or calm down spaces. I will use fluorescent light filters to reduce the harsh glare of the classroom lights. My students will use the cardstock paper to keep their interactive notebooks organized according to unit and the white board markers with lap-sized white boards to work while sitting on the floor or during tutorials.
The donations to this project will help my students engage in authentic and meaningful interactions with their peers, as well as create opportunities for them to become college and career ready.
Students come to us with many different experiences and abilities. By creating an area for students to have options other than traditional seating, it will help increase engagement, meaningful peer interaction, and create life-long learners. I truly need your support to make this a reality. Thanks!
