My Students

We are leaders in my school and proud of it! Our students work so hard to be the best leaders they can be. Our school is located along the rural Gulf Coast of Alabama, and many of our students come from homes with obstacles to overcome. Despite their many obstacles, our students rise to the challenge every day to be the best versions of themselves, so they can help others and our community. Our school motto is Learn, Love, Serve, Lead.

My Project

I teach the most wonderful group of students. They all have special and unique abilities. They all learn in very different ways and need different instruction, resources, and materials to be successful. This year I have a new curriculum I am teaching. It is an online curriculum, but I am still downloading and printing a lot of the activities so some of my students can get the hands on access they need to be successful. The binders, tabs, velcro, printer ink and laminating pouches will all be used for turning our online curriculum into a hands on curriculum. The paper will allow me to send newsletters home to parents so they know what we are working on and can reinforce it at home. The phonics books will be used for reinforcing some basic reading skills in a fun way. The magnetic letters will be used for building our sight words. The Picasso tiles will be used to build and create as a fun center and also a STEM activity. The flash drive and memory cards will be used by our photography club to capture special events at school so parents who can't make it can still see those special moments enjoyed by their students. The baby wipes and lysol wipes will be used to clean up messes around the room from our super fun art crafts that we send home. The pull-ups will be used by one of my students who is currently potty training. The switch adapted fan will replace the one we have that is worn out and broken. The Christmas crafts and ginger bread houses will be used at our Christmas party so parents can craft with their students. We love our parents and love for them to be a part of their students growth and success!
