My Students

My students this year are extremely sweet. They are always looking for the opportunity to help others in any way they can.

I have never met such a caring group.

These students are also hard-working and full of questions! They are naturally curious and thoroughly enjoy learning about new and exciting things. They also LOVE to read. I have to ask them daily to bookmark the section of their latest page turner in order for us to complete our tasks for the day. They thoroughly enjoy learning about new things and truly strive to be their best selves every day!

My Project

I am a first year teacher and would love to provide the best for my students. Unfortunately, there are many classroom items needed to adequately start up a classroom.

Morning meetings build a sense of community and belonging.

A carpet will help bring us together to achieve that goal. My students are already eager to help others. I would love to continue to foster that innate desire.

Third grade is a big year for students. At times, it can be make or break in regards to a thirst for knowledge. Flexible seating with bungee chairs will entice students to get cozy with a good book and continue seeking answers to their instinctive curiosity.
