My Students

Take a look around and you will see students working and succeeding together. You will see pairs, small groups, large groups and independent work occurring all at once. You will see looks of inquisition, frustration, excitement, happiness, suspense and the timeless "Aha." You will see students that feel safe and secure.

Look deeper, look past all of that and you may see partners in which one student shares a small, one bedroom apartment with a single mother and four other siblings while the other student lives in a single family home with both parents and a loving pet.

The advantage of open enrollment allows my students to learn and experience a variety of cultures and backgrounds. Once they step foot in our classroom they discover all that they have in common. They become their own community. My students love every moment they get to spend in my classroom because it is there where they know they have people they can depend on. I am a constant in their lives and they cherish that.

"Thank you Mrs. C. for being the best teacher I have ever had. I was proud to call your classroom a second home!" -T, former student.

My Project

My students love to read but need an inviting and comfortable space within our classroom to enjoy their books. This is a simple project with a massive impact.

Our classroom books are in desperate need of a good home!

This project consists of organizational bins which can be labeled by genre. These bins would be used to house our wonderful collection of books for student use. Adding these to our library would allow books to be organized by genre and interest level which would encourage more students to pick up more books, more often! Of course, once they grab a book the next step is to grab a comfy spot to read. I fully support a classroom of flexible seating as I have seen many wonderful benefits. This project includes flexible seating options for multiple students to read and work collaboratively within our classroom library. By funding this project you would help us to have an inviting and comfortable classroom library and encourage these students to foster and nurture a love for reading.
