My Students

My students are very sweet and hard-working. They come from homes that do not have much. Most of my students come from homes that have single mothers raising them. These single mothers usually work several part-time jobs to get by. Most of these students come to school at 6:30 a.m. in the before-school program and stay until about 5:30 p.m. They have breakfast, lunch, and dinner at school. Even though these students have tough challenges in their lives, they still make the most of their day and put forth their best effort. They truly want to excel in school and in life. These students deserve to have all the opportunities that others have despite their daily challenges.

My Project

The Cricut Cutter Machine will make a big difference in our classroom. Students will be able to create and design things with their minds on paper. Then they will be able to take their creations from their paper and make them with the Cricut Cutter Machine. My students are very inventive. They love to design and create all of the time.

My students would use their problem solving skills to create and design projects and use the Cricut Cutter Machine to finish their design.

The Cricut Cutter craft tote will help protect project materials from loss and damage.

They would use creativity, technology, research and drawings to be innovative and collaborate as a team to develop new projects.
