My Students

I am lucky enough to teach a dynamic group of students that come from all walks of life! Our students are in school to learn about academic subjects, but these are not the only things that they need to learn if they ever want to become successful in the real world.

Students today learn in so many different ways and it is my job to meet their individual needs through personalized learning.

As a teacher, I strive to find ways to motivate, engage, and spark creativity in my students. And that costs money - that's where I need your help!

My Project

The Cricut Maker will be used in my classroom for several purposes. It can be used to create individualized flashcards, bulletin boards, and even creative extensions for student projects. My students would have the chance to allow their creativity to flow. They would be able to make interactive bulletin boards, parent gifts, and even end of year t-shirts. After teaching for 17 years, I still trace or print and cut things by hand. While I plan on continuing with these practices as needed, the use of this machine would greatly decrease the amount of time I spend prepping and allow me to focus on teaching.

By funding this project you are allowing me to put more time into teaching and less time into prepping.

You are helping me to provide my students with hands-on learning and a chance to get their creativity flowing. Thanks in advance for considering my project.
