My Students

As a teacher, I always see the best in my students. Each of my sweet first graders possess qualities that make them unique. My classroom consists of 11 boys and 7 girls, all who make our learning environment special.

My students are curious, brave, and creative.

As a teacher, I strive to make learning as challenging and fun for my students as possible. Having the appropriate resources help me to accomplish this goal. Instilling a passion for learning is my focus each and every day.

My Project

Chair pockets help students easily access materials we use each day. My students store their markers, scissors, glue, crayons, and other every day items in their chair pockets. The current chair pockets my students are using have been used for several years and are beginning to rip.

By donating to my project, you will help my students access tools that aid in their learning each and every day.

I would like for my students to be able to use and enjoy a new set of chair pockets to keep their items near and accessible. My students would be so excited to have a new set of chair pockets.
