My Students

My students are energetic, entertaining, and lovable kids who are improving academically and socially every day. This is the first class I've ever had, and my students have set the bar high for years to come.

These students have taught me so much, and I want to give them the best learning environment so that their knowledge will flourish!

These students deserve an organized classroom that meets their needs so that they can focus on their learning and not worry about losing their supplies.

My Project

I love for my students to improve upon their organization skills and make sure that their supplies are exactly where they can find them. Desks get filled with so many supplies, and things somehow get lost! I am hoping that providing my students with these chair pockets will allow for them to keep some supplies in their desks and some in the pockets.

In addition to my homeroom class, I also have students come to me for the math block.

Ideally, I would love for communal supplies (pencils, colored pencils, scissors) to be kept in the pockets for both classes to utilize when they are in my room.
