My Students

My students are curious, fun students from a variety of backgrounds. There is a lot of learning diversity among my students.

They love learning in independently and in groups.

My students love the ability to work at their own pace. They like to collaborate online with each other. They love exploring the world and all the wonders of it.

The learning diversity in the classroom gives me the ability to work with small groups while others work independently or in small groups online

My Project

Please help me provide basic supplies for my students for the upcoming year. These pencil sharpener, colored pencils and scissors will allow them to be more creative during the learning process.

Meeting these basic needs for creativity in learning is one way to create a fun learning atmosphere.

My students love to create and color different items in science but the supplies run out quickly. With this replenishment of supplies, I will be able to foster creativity in the most reluctant students.

These supplies allow for more activities and allow higher order thinking by having the ability to create. To teach beyond remembering is to provide a lasting impact.
