My Students

I am the teacher of 24 amazing first graders! I love coming to work every day and spending countless hours with them because they put a smile on my face. I try my best to give them everything they need everyday academically but sometimes my resources come up short. Please help me to help my students because they are still young enough to enjoy learning and I would love to keep their interest in learning alive.

My students need love, support, guidance, and a leader.

Our year together can be brighter with your help. Please help us get the tools we need to enhance our learning and strengthen our knowledge.

My Project

My students need a new easel and rug for our classroom. Our class spends a lot of time sitting on the rug and it is the center of our daily routine. We also need an easel so I can display new skills and charts for the whole class.

Having a new easel and rug will help make our morning meeting rock!

In addition to spending the beginning of our day in this area of our room, we also spend a great portion of the day there. My students read on the rug, play math games on the rug, participate in brain breaks on the rug, and explore STEM activities on the rug. We need a great space for all of this learning.

Our new easel will also help with all of this learning so that while my students are on the rug, I can support their learning by displaying new skills that we are working on and hang charts for my students to refer back to. Please help my students have an amazing classroom environment by adding these items to our room.
