My Students

This is my first year teaching and I'm so excited to start!! I teach a very diverse group of students at Wallace Elementary, a Title I school. Approximately 40% of our students are refugees from the Thailand and African areas. The students at my school come from over 19 different countries, and for some students this will be their first year in an American school. Our school is a very unique, and diverse school with some of the most eager learners. These kids amaze me everyday despite adversity when given the tools to succeed they always rise to the occasion.

My Project

I have just gotten my DREAM job at a Title I elementary school located in Dallas, TX. This also happens to be the elementary school that I attended throughout my entire elementary career, so I am beyond thrilled to come "home!"

I will have the privilege of teaching kindergarten, and am needing some serious help preparing for this upcoming school year.

From storage to manipulatives, I am hopeful that the items I need will help facilitate a challenging, yet safe classroom environment.

These items will be used for hands on learning as well as seating for my students. Ultimately I want to inspire young minds to become passionate about learning, and have a little (or a LOT) of fun while doing so!
