My Students

My school is a Title I school and has been designated as being the highest poverty in our district. Our school is a place where collaboration and parent involvement are the keys to social and academic growth in our students. We have a safe and nurturing environment to help students blossom. My students are beautifully unique and embrace learning.

My students will change the world for the better.

They are innovative, loving, generous, kind, and are very grateful for all of the challenges and blessings that life brings. These kids inspire our entire school. They always want to know more, and the result of their growth every day is incredible.

My Project

The end of the school year is almost here! My students came back from spring break ready to learn as much as they can before the end of the year! I am looking forward to celebrating all their accomplishments at our end of year closing program! This is such a bittersweet event. My students grow so much over the year​ and develop into independent learners. They are most definitely ready to succeed in 2nd grade next year!

I want to make their closing program a special and memorable experience.

I would love to create memory books for each of my students. Each student will write/draw about their favorite 1st grade memory, and the pages will be combined to make a book. In order to create these books for each student, copy paper and crayons will be needed.

We are also in need of completion certificates that we can fill out and give to our students at the closing program. Our students have worked so hard this year, and we want to celebrate all the progress and accomplishments that they have made!
