My Students

I have a great group of students who are eager to learn and work as a team. As a teacher, I encourage my students to use whole body learning. We describe that as using all aspects of who we are in order to learn and understand the most we can. We enjoy working our brains with academic activities just as much as working our bodies with physical activities in the classroom.

Many of the students in my school come from homes in which their only access to meals, play, and sometimes running water is when they are at school.

Almost every family in our school qualifies for free breakfast and lunch for their students. Despite the many economic and emotional challenges my students face at home, they walk into my classroom each day eager to learn, ready to face challenges and grow as a person.

My Project

As we finish our first few months together, I am amazed at just how open minded, curious, and confident my students are in their learning. They push through challenges. They take pride in new findings. And they work together to make success a possibility for everyone.

Many of my students were not able to afford this year's school supplies due to having several students in school at once, buying new clothing or shoes, and meeting the daily needs of raising a family.

As my student's growing brains soak up our curriculum, we are slowly decreasing our sock pile of beginning of the year school supplies. By having more paper, pencils, and markers, my students and I can continue our school journey without worrying if this is our last ream of paper. Or if our markers can last until June. Instead we will get to wonder, how many math problems can we do by the last day of school? Or how many stories we will write by June? We won't have to worry about not having enough of something because of money, we will just be students learning.
