My Students

I am a first-year teacher. I am very excited to meet my first group of students this August! I will be teaching second grade at our elementary school.​ I will be working to fill my classroom with supplies to welcome them in August. These students attend a small school in a wonderful school district. I am excited to be a part of this team! These second graders deserve the very best and I cannot wait to give them all that I can!

My Project

We will be starting the year with a second-grade classroom with nothing but the bare necessities! My students need hands-on and engaging learning experiences in order to flourish in my classroom, and these items will help them to learn and enjoy learning! I am asking for writing and drawing supplies, math manipulatives and games, and a few choice books that touch on some important concepts. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to create engaging experiences for my students with these materials. I believe that school should be full of exploration and hands-on​ learning, and these items will help us to accomplish that!
