My Students

Our school is an exceptional Title I school with exceptional students. Their motivation to push themselves to gain as much knowledge as possible is inspiring. We are a small town in Louisiana. Like most schools, we feel the struggle of not having the funds that could help get our students to the next level, boost their interests, and keep them involved in a fun way.

Our school is composed of Pre-K through 5th grade students.

We have 100% free breakfast and lunch. My students are preparing to be successful in a technology driven society. They have goals, dreams, and aspirations for this school year. I know that they can accomplish anything, but it is my hope to make sure they have all the needed resources to do that!

My Project

One thing a teacher ALWAYS struggles with in her classroom, especially if your building is very old like mine, is storage. Throughout the years you collect all different kinds of materials to make your classroom a magical place with no where to store anything. Our classrooms become cluttered and makes the room feel crowded. I want my classroom to feel like a organized safe space for my students. I want them to have the freedom to move around the room without being restricted.

With the ClosetMaid 1327 Decorative 9-Cube Storage OrganizerSauder and 5-Shelf Bookcase I will be able to turn a small overcrowded space into a space that feels like home.

The students will have a place for all of their materials. This will free up their table space and floor space. They will now have the freedom to move around the room with partners, games, etc. without the hassle of materials all over the table and floor to get in their way and/or lost and damaged materials. Something as simple as organization can completely transform a classroom.
