My Students

Most days when you walk down the hall, you will see a fifth-grader volunteering to help another teacher or walking a younger student to class. They are driven to make good choices from day to day. Our school promotes a feeling of pride, and the students take their role as a "bulldog" very seriously!

Our classroom promotes a love of reading, by providing student access to all different genres and levels of books.

Thanks to DonorsChoose.org, we have been able to build our classroom library. The students enjoy finding a cozy spot to read these fiction books, and they are always excited to share their personal favorites with their classmates. Our classroom is a buzz about books!

My Project

My students would like a few items to help make communication and collaboration easier in the classroom. The tables and chairs will help students easily work together on tasks, problem solving and discovering.

Students need space to think through ideas and challenge their thinking.

This furniture allows students the ability to choose seating that best fits their learning style and creates a sense of community.

The students can choose to sit at the high-top table or the desk to work with a partner on tasks throughout the day. With a focus on writing and social studies in our room this year, this will provide a comfortable learning space.
