My Students

Do you know an 8-year-old who doesn't like to learn in a larger than life way? Me neither! I have a classroom full of 3rd grade students who are curious and love to learn.

My students are energetic and love being engaged both mentally and physically in their learning.

They thrive in an environment where they can experience the curriculum in a variety of ways and share their learning. These kids love to be creative and solve problems and I am always looking for new ways to challenge them.

My Project

My students learn best when they can talk, problem solve, and collaborate together. I want to be able to provide them with the tools they need to do these things effectively.

Charles Leanoard Dry Erase Chalkboards would allow my kids to work side by side to do their most creative and innovative work.

Clipboards, mechanical pencils, and erasers would give them the opportunity to move around freely as their ideas flow and are developed.

These tools would transform on task time in the classroom into vibrant, high energy, hands-on learning, which would allow for deeper learning and retention of a variety of concepts
