My Students

I am a third grade teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district on the outskirts of New Orleans. My students come from diverse backgrounds, but all love to read, learn math using manipulatives, explore Louisiana through books and field trips, and make discoveries through science experiments. They love to share with me when they've found a book that has information about what we've just learned in science, math, and social studies, and they love funny books.

My students are an energetic, loving group who want to be successful.

I cannot wait to see them engaged in learning!

My Project

My students need a CD player with headphones to create a listening center along with books and CDs to use at the center. My students love to read, but we are in need of classroom materials to help encourage this love of reading. I have a few books on CD, but unfortunately in my classroom there is no CD player to listen to them. We are also in need of more books for independent reading that correlate with our reading unit. My students really get into our reading units and want to learn and read more about what we are learning.
