My Students

My students are a wonderful bunch of small-town kids who come to class eager to learn! They come from varying backgrounds, but most have lived in our community for their entire life, having the same classmates since kindergarten. More than 75% are from low-income families and receive free or reduced-price lunches.

My students enter the classroom each morning with a hug or a high-five and a smile.

We have a lot of work to do in 6th grade but we make things as fun as possible.

My Project

Writing lessons, correcting mistakes, completing lapbooks, being creative!! All of these things require basic school supplies. Pencils, glue, scissors, paper, paint, erasers...these things are missing from our classroom.

In our classroom it is our goal to be creative while learning; therefore, we need the supplies necessary to achieve our goals.

Lapbooks are a fun way to remember science and social studies facts. We do not have scissors and glue to put them together. Our pencils and erasers are broken or missing. We would love to have quality paper to use as well.

Having access to quality school supplies will help my sixth grade class achieve its goals while having fun!
