My Students

My students come from every economic and social group imaginable.

They are eager, energetic learners who deserve a classroom that is fully functional.

Our school is full of wonderfully supportive families, but we have little in the way of funds for basic necessities.

From the minute the students walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Our District is making the switch to Google. With this switch, I am trying to grow the following skills in my students: Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity. With the headphones, students would be able to focus on their adventure through the world of Google. Headphones are used during more than 80% of our class time.

This will change our students' lives for the better because they will love school and feel success at an early age --- having fun while learning!

By being able to gift them with items to make their work easier and more special, they will continue to work hard. A little appreciation goes a long way to students and my students give so much.
