My Students

I teach a very diverse group of students in a high needs area. My students are so cheerful, hard working and kind. They come to school ready and excited with a smile on their face!

These kids come into our classroom and work so hard.

Because of this, I see growth every single day. I am so proud to be their teacher because I get to watch them soar each and every day. The 78 ten year old kids that I get to spend time with each day inspire me to be my best, and I want to do the best I can for them. This is why I need you!

My Project

In today's world, technology is an essential resource. Students need to be able to use technology so that they can learn the skills necessary to be successful. We have been fortunate enough to have been given a class set of iPads, but as of right now we do not have enough charging cables to keep these resources up and running.

Education that is enhanced by technology is so meaningful for students.

My fifth grade team wants to provide as many opportunities to enhance our instruction as possible. We need your help to provide us with the opportunity to have changed up devices that are ready to go!

While we love technology, we also love to use paper and pencil activities to charge up our learning too! This is so difficult when the pencils are not sharp and ready to go. New pencil sharpeners will help us to increase learning all day long!
