My Students

My kids are the BEST! They are thoughtful, passionate learners. They come to school everyday excited to learn and ready to work hard. They come from all over the city to our Magnet school and make up a diverse group of learners. HSA kids are interesting and interested in those around them. My students ask deep questions and wont rest until the find their answers. They work together towards solutions not only at our school but world around us. Together we have an amazing community of learners that support each other.

My Project

A new rug is essential to our classroom environment. We meet on the rug everyday to start our day. A new clean, colorful rug will be a great addition to our classroom. This one is colorful and inviting.

The supplies in this project will help our classroom run smoother.

They will help me create new center materials and games for them to practice new skills and work collaboratively with their peers.

A desktop laminator will allow me to keep materials looking brand new and last all year! New math tools will allow my students to better understand and practice new concepts.
