My Students

My wonderful fourth-grade students come from all walks of life and because of this, each one adds so many wonderful things to our diverse classroom environment. They are very accepting and kind to others. They love to please and make others happy. My students come to school ready and eager to learn.

My students enter the doors of our AdvancED STEM certified school knowing that the staff is prepared to help them reach their potential of being college and career ready.

My Project

This school year is almost over and it is already time to think about a new school year. Having some new classroom supplies such as clipboards, dry erase markers and erasers, pencil dispenser, green and red felt tip markers for revising and editing writing assignments, and other supplies will help my students have a fresh new start to the year.

I also want each of my students to feel special on their birthday, so having a birthday pencil, sticker, bookmark, and bracelet ready for them on their birthday will help them feel special.

During our day my students work with partners or small groups often. During this time it may get a little loud, the doorbell will be a great addition to our classroom to get everyone's attention when needed.

Thank you for helping me to help my students feel welcomed and special.
