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

My students come from a variety of backgrounds. I have found that throughout the years character traits are something that have been something that we need to work on more at school. I have put some of these ideas into place in my classroom and am interested in incorporating more! We need Lakeshore Character Kids, the book Character Kids Save the Day! and Character Development Book Sets, Those Shoes, Marvin Redpost and more to help build a sense of community and instill character traits in our classroom.

Young students need guidance and support in education, making good choices and learning responsibility.

The support of these materials would provide my students with many other ways to learn these skills. They will help them develop into caring young men and women that will be able to handle a variety of situations and change the world one person at a time.
