My Students

In a city known for its challenges, my primary goal is to provide my students with a safe and rigorous environment where they can take the many skills taught within the classroom to a successful future ahead.

I teach a group of 34 fourth grade students with a combination of various special needs students mainstreamed within.

My students are a very energetic, inquisitive and highly motivated group. They absolutely love to learn new information in a tactile and hands-on way.

One thing that sets my group of students apart is their motivation and drive to make this world a better place. They strive for change and to make a positive impact on society. At such a young age, they are already able to describe how their future actions will affect those around them. With such a positive outlook on their future, it is my duty to provide my students with enriching activities that will make them productive future scholars in society.

Through the help of, I hope to be able to provide more learning opportunities for my students through the use of materials that are not easily accessible in public education.

My Project

My students currently read Digital Stories everyday during our Language Arts Block. Often times, these stories can be challenging to understand. Through this project, my students are going to be able to show their comprehension by responding to and creating Digital Stories of their own!

My students are in need of a new class pencil sharpener, pencils, and erasers in order to participate in the Writing Process with Digital Stories!

With these supplies, my students are going to write about, create, or recreate stories of their own!

The pencils and erasers are going to help support my students with the necessary supplies needed for the writing process. The pencil sharpener is going to help my students sharpen their pencils as needed during class.

These items are going to help facilitate the writing process in my classroom. With these items, my students are going to be able to make stories of their own, recreate stories/or change specific parts of stories, and respond to stories that we have read in class.

Through this project, my students are going to have supplies necessary to help foster creative writing in a Digital World. They are also going to be able meet Common Core State Standards for Writing, while learning in an engaging and creative manner!
