My Students

My scholars attend a public charter school located in West Dallas.

Each day, my students come into class with an excitement for life and a willingness to learn.

They are loving, smart, funny, and some of the most resilient humans I have ever met. At the ages of 9 and 10, some of my students will have gone through more tough times than I have in my entire lifetime... yet they show up daily with smiles on their faces and positive attitudes.

It is truly a blessing to be their teacher. I learn so much from them each day. My students deserve a safe, comfortable, and loving environment... and I am determined to give them just that!

My Project

Adding a Convert-A-Bench into my classroom will provide an exciting and versatile flexible seating option! Students can use the bench side as a cozy reading spot and the table side as a place to work on projects or classwork.

Mixing academics with well-known board games gets students excited about academic content!

Games will bring a sense of fun and excitement in the room and get them motivated to practice their new skills.

The IRIS durable task card storage will allow students to keep our classroom materials organized and ultimately allow the materials to last longer as well. Organization and respect for property are great lessons in the 4th grade classroom!
