My Students

My students are creative, highly energized, and inquisitive to name a few of their attributes. They require my full attention at all times.

I love that my students come to school motivated and ready to learn each day.

Therefore, I must have everything ready and in place for them when they step into the door.

Saving a few minutes here or there on other tasks would give me more time to engage with my students. Every moment counts in my classroom.

My Project

We use technology daily in our classroom. However, we still take many assessments and complete various tasks using paper and pencils. In order to keep our papers and other documentation organized and to reduce time off tasks, there are essentials that we need.

My students come to school each day ready to learn.

Therefore, I must have everything ready and in place for them when they step into the door. An electric pencil sharpener, electric stapler, and pencils would allow my students to create projects, class presentations, and complete assessments with little time off task. These items are essentials that can improve productivity.
