My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds. Teaching in a lower income area, some of my students have been to preschool, while others have had no educational exposure at all. Each student comes to school excited and ready to learn.

My goal is to provide my students with the best possible educational experiences.

My students enjoy hands-on learning experiences and I strive to provide them with as many opportunities to explore learning and their environment on a daily basis.

My Project

We're off on our way to a better school day! Our class would greatly appreciate learning more about character education. Each and every day we strive to be the best learning community that we can. Sometimes we need reminders and guidance.

The use of these character education units would help to provide my classroom with more skills and strategies in becoming a better learning community!

The average first grader has many challenges to meet each day and they can sometimes become overwhelmed. My goal is to provide them with the necessary skills to make these challenges much less difficult and to provide my students with a great experience each day!
