My Students

My students are bright, bubbly first graders who are in a small rural community. They are dreamers, thinkers, and debaters who want to find answers to the questions around them.

Our school serves students in grades K-4 and provides precise learning opportunities and our administrators and parents provide so much support to the staff and students here.

I feel so blessed to be able to teach in such a supportive environment.

I know one day these students will change the world. Our classroom is full of possibilities. Please help us achieve all we can by donating to our classroom.

My Project

I teach sweet first-grade students full of life and energy. As an educator, I try to provide lots of comfort in the classroom to my students.

I want our classroom to feel like home to them.

By helping me provide more comfortable seating, you will be helping make our classroom more like "home" for my students. Sometimes the smallest things in our classroom mean the most. They will be using these seats when they are doing research, using computers to learn, as well as reading and playing math games. The reusable dry erase pockets will also provide several ways for my first graders to become more independent learners, without having to waste so much paper. Please consider helping my students and me.
