My Students

Our multi-age classroom is a community of learners and growers. We spend two years with our students, guiding them and watching them blossom. We emphasize working together and being a community. Each student helps one another and learns in the best way, by teaching.

Our students are an amazing and diverse group of third and fourth graders.

They come from high poverty areas. The difficulties these students face are sometimes unimaginable. Some are homeless or have family separations. School is often their comfort place and provides food as well as stability and shelter. The school is Title One funded. Our classroom is like a community and we want the students to feel comfortable and safe to learn.

My Project

Our classroom needs a Cricut Cutting System to help our students design props, letters, shapes, and labels to design professional looking items based on the books they read and the concepts they learn.

We are teachers to an amazing group of students who love to be creative and enjoy designing.

There are approx. 50 students in our classroom and they all love to share their academic knowledge in ways that show off their own unique qualities. The Cricut will give students another way to collaborate and design items and bring them to life. As teachers will also be able to create unique rewards and incentives for the students to cherish.
