My Students

I am a first year teacher hoping to make a great impact on my students lives. I want to make sure that my 27 fourth graders have great opportunities to learn with necessary materials to make their learning better. Having a larger classroom, my group of students have various needs that I want to support throughout their fourth grade education.

I am excited to develop my students into a group of students that not only learn, but enjoy learning!

With your help, I can ensure that my students will become a group of life-long learners.

My Project

My classroom would benefit from more seating because when moving around the classroom, students are having to bring their own chairs from their desks. When working in small groups, it would be beneficial to have these stools so students can have an easier time getting into small groups. The clipboards are beneficial because students will be able to move around and sit on the rug to work, which may help students to learn in a more comfortable learning environment. The other materials are "basics" which would help me to have supplies for my classroom. This includes staples and board erasers.
