My Students

These kids are hardworking and strive to be role models for the younger grades. My students are from all over the world and speak many different languages. These students are 21st-century learners who work every day to be future leaders.

Along with diversity, our classroom thrives on having a loving community of acceptance and support.

These students focus on the 7 habits of a highly effective leader and use these habits to grow as individuals every day. My students are curious and want to explore every question.

My Project

My students are in need of basic materials such as a pencil sharpener, cap erasers and clip boards. With your help the students will feel at ease to make mistakes without the fear of not having enough erasers. The students also love to sit around the room and work with the flexible seating. In order for them to leave their desks they need clipboards. Another aspect of our day is reading groups. Reading groups are in full swing and it’s important that each student is getting the support or enrichment that they need with some fluency practice and multisyllabic word practice. Lastly, this is the first year that cursive is coming back into the curriculum. I would love to have some resources to help the students fluently learned how to write in cursive.
