My Students

I am a 4th grade teacher in Boise School District. We are a Title I school meaning low socioeconomic status & entire school on the free lunch program.

Our school is focusing as a staff, on adolescent trauma & resiliency.

I was very lucky last year to be able to attend a conference on 'Creating a Trauma Sensitive School' with our leadership team. Very relevant and hit home with our school population. Last school year, I had a student that lost both parents within 6 months time due to drug overdoses, 5 grandparents raising their grandchildren, 3 incarcerated parents, an autistic child & 5 refugee students. It was a year of building trust & deepening relationships with my students. They were a smart & active group.

I have 31 students starting this 2018-19 school year with each having their "own" story to be told.

My Project

Enhancing our classroom environment this year with diffuser & fidget bands is another exciting goal. We have recently been adding to our flexible seating in our room with medicine ball seats, round fidget seats, stools, bean bags, & cushion seats. These have given our students choices for their learning environment. They can grab a clip board and sit on a cushion chair or medicine ball to follow along with the lesson rather than sitting in the traditional desk & chair.

With adding more seating choices, the addition of an essential oil diffuser & fidget bands would help the environment we are trying to create.

The Marble Maze is for an Enrichment choice in our 4th grade pod. We have some amazing items such as LEGOs, K'Nex etc. and this marble maze will add to our engineering STEM area.
