My Students

The elementary school that I work at is such a special place! This year is our first year being open and we have hit the ground running. Our students come to school each day ready to take on another day of learning. I am proud to say that every staff member at my school strives to provide the best place to learn for our students.

My goal is to create a school and classroom environment that is inviting, engaging, meaningful and full of passion!

My classroom is a safe place where learning is fun but adds meaning to their lives.

My students are the most enthusiastic group of students I have had yet. Each and every one of them brings something unique to our classroom. Despite coming from low income backgrounds, they deserve the very best! Thanks to your donations, I will continue to be able to do whatever I can to help my students succeed and move on to be successful members of society!

My Project

My students love to learn new things! Watching them work through a new concept with their peers is amazing. When we are practicing these new skills I believe that it should be done in a fun way. One game that my students have really enjoyed this year is a classic whiteboard challenge. With this activity, I pose a question and students are expected to solve/write their answer on a whiteboard. Unfortunately in our classroom, our whiteboards, markers, and erasers have seen better days and some classrooms at our school do not have any.

New dry erase materials will enhance our experience in these learning activities.

This project will provide 5 class sets of whiteboards, markers, and erasers. This will allow for each student to have their own marker, eraser, and whiteboard on hand to participate in lessons. At our school, teachers K-4 can use these in whole group games and small group lessons. We are hopeful to receive the funding for these materials so that we can bring even more engagement to our classrooms!
