My Students

I am a fourth year teacher. I have supported my classroom myself until now, when I realized that I need some help!

Teaching is everything to me.

I teach at a title 1 school, meaning my students do not have the means to experience "grand" things. I try to bring the magic to them, any chance that I have.

My kids have the sweetest hearts. They come to school everyday ready to learn. We love to play, sing, explore, teach and get messy together. There is NEVER a dull moment in my classroom!

I could not imagine doing anything else but being with my littles!

My Project

I always try to keep my students on their toes when we are learning about something new. I love doing interactive learning with my students! Having dry erase markers and dry erase boards will help with that!

We play so many reading and math games that require writing and I know that using a reusable learning tool is essential for this.

I also added a pencil sharpener to help my students keep their pencils and colored pencils ready for when they need to write on paper.

All of these things would really help access learning for all of my firsties!
