My Students

In our classroom, we are more than just a teacher and students. We become family over the year. We learn, laugh, and make mistakes together, as a community. From the beginning, we come together to create magical learning experiences in our classroom.

A masterpiece is built when many different personalities with diverse perspectives, come together to create something wonderful, which I refer to as family, a classroom, or whatever you choose to call it.

Our classroom culture is built on trust, commonalities and differences, and as I said, our love for learning. Our school is a 100% free/reduced-price lunch school, and more than three-quarters of the students come from low-income, high poverty backgrounds. Our classroom is full of caring, creative, driven, and fun-loving individuals who all come together because of one thing, our love for learning.

The number one goal I have in mind for my students is creating a safe place for them to come for a warm meal, friendly smile, and optimism.

With limited resources in our district, we are often unable to purchase items that students need to maximize their learning, explore the world around them, and challenge themselves.

My Project

Our classroom is currently filled with random totes, baskets, bags, you name it, we probably have it. It is extremely difficult for students to find things at times because there are so many different places to find math, reading, science, etc. materials.

With these cube organizers, my students and I will be able to organize our room perfectly so we are able to find things in seconds, rather than minutes.

I selected cube organizers because they will fit nicely into our room, and we can organize the cubes how we need to, and fit each subject into each organizer. Our nine cube organizer will be utilized for language arts (reading, writing, spelling), the two, three cube organizers will be used for history and science, and the six cube organizer will take care of our math supplies.
