My Students

When you walk into our classroom, you will be greeted by sixteen energetic students eager to learn. Our school is located in a trauma sensitive, rural community. We are a co-taught classroom where the students are lucky enough to have two teachers, one regular education teacher and one special education teacher.

Our classroom is made up of a variety of learners with different needs.

With the extra hands of another teacher in the classroom, we are able to help reach more students academically and provide more detailed instruction.

My Project

For our second grade students, breakfast is an important part of the day to fuel their bodies and prepare them for a day full of learning. There has been too many days where our second grade students come to school hungry. As a second grade team we would like to supply healthy breakfast snacks for the students to start their day of right. Many of the critical learning begins right away in the morning.

Having healthy snacks to fuel those students bodies and brains is imperative to their learning.

Students would benefit from healthy breakfast options knowing they can come to school and have something to eat. It has been become too costly to continue supplying students with healthy snacks. This project would help many students fuel their bodies and give them the ability to take on the day.
