My Students

I am so excited to finally be accomplishing my lifelong dream of becoming a teacher! As a first time teacher, I am thrilled to be a part of shaping the lives of our precious children!

My class will contain 20 bright young individuals!!

This age brings so much joy and life to the classroom! I am so excited to meet each child and support their strengths and encourage their weaknesses.

I can not wait to become a part of an amazing team who inspires all individuals from teachers to students!

My Project

My students will be coming into a classroom where there are no supplies. We need your help to give them the tools they need to be able to come to school and be successful!

Students in this class will use the pencils to learn how to write starting with their name and working towards words and sentences.

Students will use the color crayons to be able to illustrate pictures that they will use to teach beginning writing skills.

Students will use the whiteboards so they can interact during the lessons and I can have a quick assessment tool to see how students are comprehending the information being taught in a lesson.
