First-Year 6th Grade Teacher!

Help me give my students an awesome classroom with stools, a rug, posters, whiteboards, and a learning experience that they will always remember!

My Students

I absolutely LOVE working with children of ALL ages! They never seem to amaze me by how witty, silly, and willing to learn they are. The kids that I work with are in need of love and attention. I try to offer them the best of me so that they will receive that and more each day they come to my classroom!

My Project

I am just starting my teaching career and I want to give my very first class the best learning experience possible. Children respond better when they are in a space where they feel safe.

I want my room to be fun, engaging, and offer lots of materials to help my students achieve their educational goals.

I hope that when they walk into my classroom for the very first time, they are excited to get going and for the first time EVER, be excited about MATH!

I plan to use lots of manipulatives to give my students options in their learning, and colorful posters that better explain the material. I also want to offer flexible seating in my classroom as differentiation and also as a reward. Please help me give them all that they deserve.
