My Students

My students are absolutely AMAZING!! We are a Title One school district, meaning we have MANY low income students. Many of our students are near or below poverty levels. Many of our students are also moving from other parts of the country due to an oil boom that we are currently experiencing. Due to the oil boom many of our students are living in travel trailers due to a housing shortage.

My goal as a teacher is to make sure EVERY student feels loved and has the opportunity to learn when they are in my classroom!

Students need to feel that they belong, have every opportunity to learn and to feel secure in doing so.

My Project

I have found that taking a different approach to reading helps students understand certain concepts, using ART helps to transfer my student's understanding into creativity. Students learn by doing, so by having them do a "project" or get "creative" with a lesson will help them remember objectives, concepts and lessons much longer than just a lecture.

The Crayola markers, Crayola colored pencils, Blick Sulphite Drawing paper and Spectra Glitter assortment will help make these projects unique.

This also gives them time to collaborate with others and learn from their peers as well. These materials will greatly enhance the learning in my classroom!
