My Students

We are a team, a crew, a family of 31 collaborators with mixed needs and abilities. No matter how you describe it or look at it, we are together. We are the future. On a day-to-day basis, we are learning lifelong skills of patience, tolerance, and acceptance of one another. Learning takes time, but we will reap the rewards of learning, growing, and playing together. Our determination of teamwork will make the dream work! My students' academic capabilities range from on-grade level to below in all content areas. We are a small public school with grades K-5 composed of mixed income and backgrounds.

Make a difference, make our day, make our future.

I have been teaching amazing, vibrant and remarkable third graders for quite some time. It never fails - year after year they enter the classroom ready and rip-roaring to go. This exuberance wears off onto me. I need to be able to take my learners into the next generation of learning. Change is inevitable, and instilling a love and need for education and learning is essential. It is something that I am on board with. Are you?

My Project

What is T.L.C.C. you ask? My students need a little T.l.C.C. =Tender Loving Classroom Care. We just received an awesome classroom rug for a gathering place to fit our educational needs.

Now, we need to work together to keep our learning environment clean, healthy, and functional on a day to day basis.

What better way to promote respect, responsibility, and tender care then a vacuum and a diffuser. The students would learn responsibility by taking turns using the vacuum to clean the rug. This would help promote respect and pride for their learning environment. The essential oil diffuser is a soothing way to spread a calming effect with the daily buzz and hub-bub felt in a busy classroom. The diffuser will assist in promoting a soothing environment with the oils taping in to our social- emotional well being with test taking anxiety or restlessness of little minds.

Who doesn't need is a little T.L.C.C!
