My Students

"Mrs. E., look what I did!" These are the words that I am lucky enough to be able to hear every day. I have a classroom full of students who, even while they struggle with many things, love to celebrate each success that they are able to achieve. Together, we work hard each year to create an environment in our room where all of my students know that if they work hard, they can achieve their goals!

We have also worked on recognizing that everyone is able to achieve their own goals differently.

Inside and outside our classroom, my students have many obstacles to overcome. Please help me give them the tools they need to succeed!

My Project

In our classroom we have had to keep all our supplies separate due to the pandemic. I make new labels all the time and laminate them, but they don't last. With the Cricut I can make labels, name tags, and so much more to keep all my students' items organized in the long term.

My students love seeing their names, and I can't wait to see their reaction when I make special items with them.

I have a huge running list of other ideas on how to use the Cricut such as a water bottle labels, supply labels, and positive messages for the spaces around our room. This tool will be used for years!
