My Students

We are a low income school with a diverse population, located in rural Appalachia. Many of my students come to school to escape hardships that they face at home. Our teachers provide a stable, loving environment for those students and continue to teach with passion to ensure the best learning possible.

Our school strives to provide many different opportunities for students to learn and accelerate.

We believe that all students can learn. Our job is to tap into that potential and make it possible!

My Project

In classrooms, we are always asking students to create projects or they are wanting to be creative in the classroom. Having a Cricut in the classroom would allow my students to do just that. Students will be able to use the Cricut to cut out items for their projects, such as lettering and different shapes and characters, and models.

Having a Cricut Maker Machine would be a true multi-purpose tool that the whole classroom could use.

The practical uses for the teacher are unlimited also. It will be used to create bulletin boards, lettering around the room, and to even create classroom field trip t-shirts. Creativity in the classroom helps ensure a love for learning.
