My Students

Our school welcomes students from various diverse backgrounds. Together, we form a community and classroom culture that cultivates the love for learning. Each day, students build on others' strengths and learn from one another. Working as a team to succeed, students continuously motivate and encourage their friends to reach their highest potential.

Each day, students enter my class ready to learn with smiles on their faces.

Their eagerness to read, learn, and apply their new knowledge makes my day and job that much more rewarding. I strive to provide the materials that each of them need to learn, grow, and develop into the most successful individuals they can possibly be.

My Project

Chevron, students thrive in an organized and purposeful classroom with hands on materials.

My goal is for every lesson to include engaging materials that will reach multiple learning styles and showcase their individual growth; with a heavy focus in science, writing, and art this year.

In science, we would greatly benefit from a solar system model, the Levenhuk LabZZ Tellurion” lusted, to help see how the Earth and moon orbits the sun. We will use the headphones to research new science concepts through videos and audio books on the computers, Scotch chart paper to learn and chart observations and present our findings, and card stock to recreate space concepts. The plant materials will help us grow our own class plants as we learn about plant part functions. The nonfiction books will help introduce our science topics throughout the year.

We would love to have a designated Writer's Workshop station with a stapler, organizational caddy, paper tray, tape dispenser, and pen holder with fancy correcting pens.

The canvas bags, tissue paper, and bookmarks are art supplies we will use throughout the year. The multiple sets of bags, laminating sheets, and binders will help us gift our art projects to others and/or preserve them for years to remember.

Several items are for community building. The All About Me posters will help us get to know one another. The sunglasses and Play-Doh will be the materials for kindness and friendship lessons. The crazy straws will help us celebrate one another on birthdays.

Chevron, please help me fuel my classroom! These supplies will help my students actively engage in learning individually and in groups to become responsible and kind individuals.
