My Students

Our classroom is an enjoyable, lively, and safe environment that creates a home-like feel. We give continuous support to one another and encourage learning even when mistakes occur.

These fabulous 4th graders deserve the best since they always give their best!

They work hard every day and are truly eager to learn new material. We work collaboratively and are truly a family within school.

Our school believes in a rich education that is unique to every single child's needs, everyday. We believe in giving our students our best, so that they can achieve their best.

My Project

As a first year classroom teacher I want to give my students the greatest opportunity for success that I can. My classroom will be designed with the feeling of comfort and never-ending support for success.

Flexible seating will allow students to move freely and keep their minds engaged while learning.

With flexible seating I will be able to give my students the comfort they need to help them be successful. Flexible seating will also help me encourage my students in making good choices.

I want to thank you in advance for any donation you are willing to invest in my classroom. The purchase of stools, crates, ball chairs, and beanbag chairs will help create the home-like atmosphere I am striving for in my classroom. My students will greatly appreciate any seating we are able to get that doesn't require them to be in a desk all day. For which we wouldn't be able to complete without you!
