My Students

My students are bright, ambitious go-getters! Always ready for what is coming next! In my book-loving room, my kids are always able to find a book to ignite their passion for reading.

We are a diverse class that celebrates our differences and cherishes what we find alike in one another.

We empower one another in our strengths and lift each other up when we struggle. We are filled with love!

We work with what we have, but could also use a little more to really help our class out!

My Project

I am in need of some flexible seating solutions for some of my kiddos who have wiggly needs! I have had great success getting my wiggly kids to concentrate and focus in the past with wobble stools and kick bands, but those were the school's property, so they stayed behind for those wiggly kiddos!

I am hoping for some donations to purchase some wobble stools, kick bands, and other flexible seating solutions to try out on my new wiggly 5th graders so that I can see that focus and concentration that I have seen in the past!

Thank you for looking!
