My Students

All 125 of our amazing fifth-grade students come to school eager for what they will learn each day. Their love of learning is absolutely contagious and exciting!

Our school motto is "Caring for Children Today, Creating Leaders for Tomorrow." I consider it one of my life's greatest blessings to be able to work alongside the best student scholars and educators in the country to help care for our students today while creating leaders for tomorrow!

This school has been my home for the last fourteen years and is committed to providing its students with all of the resources that are needed to engage students in rigorous, dynamic and inspirational instructional activities. There may be times when we do not have what we need, but we have taken on the "We can't yet..." not a "We can't..." attitude. All of the resources we want to provide to our students are available to us through the magic of DonorsChoose.org thanks to donors!

My Project

As our fifth graders join together to learn in a small group, rather it be guided reading, book clubs, guided writing, strategy groups, or math groups, they need a tabletop easel. This dry-erase magnetic easel will give teachers and the students the opportunity to share how they solve or work through problems. The dry erase feature gives us a way in which we can color code word parts or the steps in long division, or how to add and subtract money with decimals. The magnetic feature allows us to physically move magnetic letters, numbers, fraction bars, etc to problem solve.

As our students grow, we want them to learn how to problem solve and work together in a small group to communicate how they are solving problems.

Your support of these easels will help ensure that they have this opportunity to problem solve in areas that will impact their lives today and in the future by building their literacy, mathematical, and financial literacy skills.
