My Students

I greet my students at the door each and every morning! I am greeted in return by their smiling faces, high fives, and eager conversations about their evenings. They are always anxious to see what is on the agenda for the day as they routinely settle into what they call their second home.

The scholars come to school each day ready to tackle new challenges with a focus on perseverance!

Each student embraces a growth mindset as they grow academically, socially, and emotionally. They are readers, authors, scientists, engineers, mathematicians, artists, singers, musicians, athletes, dancers, and problem solvers. My scholars are WORLD CHANGERS!

My Project

Throughout the year, my fifth-grade scholars approach learning with passion and enthusiasm. They practice, grapple with challenges, persevere, and grow as learners. They deserve to experience this engaging learning opportunity!

Using room transformations and games to enhance learning, is a powerful way to inspire and invigorate our scholars.

Lessons can be fun while being paired with rigorous content.

The materials and supplies I am requesting for my scholars will help transform our classroom into a completely neon academic world. With the use of black lights, neon paint, and glow materials, students will read texts, solve problems, work collaboratively, and apply higher-level thinking skills. During Glow Day, students will have the opportunity to apply themselves while being completely immersed in their learning and activities.
