My Students

I have a class of 31 third grade students consisting of 16 girls and 15 boys. My students are diverse and unique individuals from various backgrounds. This enhances our classroom experiences in numerous ways.

My students are amazing collaborators and problem solvers who are ready to take on the challenges of the 21st century.

I encourage them to share their ideas, work together, and have fun learning. They contribute so much to our classroom that we all learn from each other.

My Project

In this technological age, many young people clock in more screen time and spend less being active. Those who are able to participate in organized sports are very fortunate. However, all kids need the basic skill of hand-eye coordination, and not just for organized sports.

By donating to our project, you will be helping all the 3rd grade students at our school improve their hand-eye coordination, while playing fun games with each other.

Our 3rd Grade team of teachers rotate our students through PE stations that we organize. The Mac-T Soft Catch Pads that I am requesting will benefit students from other classes as well. Utilizing these materials for various games is a great way to stay fit, have fun, and improve basic physical skills!
