My Students

I am a 4th grade educator who loves what she does. I am blessed to work with 28 amazing students every day at an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IBPYP) school in Salem, Oregon. This means we are studying not only 4th grade content but also thinking about how we can make a positive impact on the world. These students spend most of their day working together and collaborating to learn new things. They inquire into the world around them and are constantly asking questions about who, what, where, when and why!

As a teacher at this school, I am empowered by my students every day.

Their ideas are unique and so is our learning. They guide our instruction and we learn together every day! I am one lucky teacher to be among these amazing beings.

My Project

As an International Baccalaureate school, we are always learning from each other. Our carpet is the place where we come not only to work together and synthesize information, but to grow from our learning experiences. We have had the same classroom carpet for over 15 years and if you know kids, you know it is time for a new one.

This carpet is the one for us because it represents a global population and centers our room with the idea that we are all friends.

We want this rug so we can continue to have a meeting and sharing place. We sure hope you will help our class out and donate to this wonderful school and class!
