My Students

My classroom has 20 very active children in it. The three words that best describe my students are hopeful, savvy, and extremely resilient.

Our classroom motto is "Get Smart, Be Kind, and Make Good Choices." We spend the day using our brain power for good - by sharing with each other, playing games, working in small groups, building connections in the classroom, making art, and conducting experiments.

I strive to create an environment that is engaging, challenging, nurturing, and relevant to my students' lives. Above all, it needs to be FUN!

My students are from a Title I, urban school with a 98% poverty rate. Almost all of my students live in public housing or are homeless; many of them have experienced trauma in their young lives. Our school works extremely hard to make sure our children's needs are met. We provide every student with a mentor from first to fifth grade, as well as weekend meals, clothes, school supplies, and after school tutoring. I strive to give my student's the best because they aim to give me their very best every day!

My Project

I need a computer and document camera that links to my projector in order to project student work, watch videos, and model concepts. The document camera and computer make learning more visual and easier for all students to see than a whiteboard. We use the projector daily, but I would prefer to have a school laptop rather than bringing my personal laptop to school every day. The document camera is also much loved in my room. Students LOVE when their work gets projected over the screen. Recently, my camera broke and we need a new one. I, also, need a pencil sharpener for our classroom.
