My Students

I teach twenty-seven remarkable individuals! A recent allocation for a new 5th- grade teacher has given me the opportunity to work, learn and grow with these students. As a newly formed class, I am in awe of how these students have maintained a positive and accepting attitude. I have also come to learn about the students in my class. The majority of my students share similar cultural backgrounds that represents the community in our school. The more time I am able to spend with my students, I also discover the hardships that these students face day to day. Our school is 100% free lunch and in a low-socioeconomic area of Oklahoma City.

However, these students come to school each day motivated to learn and collaborate with each other!

My Project

Coming in as a new teacher in the middle of the year has been a wonderful and exciting opportunity. However, I have had limited time to gather classroom resources such as books, educational games, and organizational materials. Building a classroom library that offers choice in interest is a top priority. I look at each student as an individual and believe that choice in literature matters when motivating students to read. The educational games will help my students work cohesively with one another while building relationships that will improve our classroom community. I have also added organizational materials that will help with classroom management, so our class may run efficiently.

I have studied over two years on the positive impacts that classroom collaboration makes on student success.

By funding my project, you are helping to create a positive classroom environment in which ALL students should experience.
