How to describe my students? They are incredible, curious, inventive little people who are on track to change the world. They blow me away with their ideas and perspectives on the world. Spending an entire school year with these wonders is indeed a blessing.
My students deserve the very best.
They deserve the best teacher, the best instruction, the best learning environment, and the best materials to actualize their goals. My mission is to be a teacher who not only helps students grow academically, but also socially, and emotionally.
As you are well aware, teacher classroom supply budgets are small and need to go far. I am requesting two tables and three chairs that I otherwise would not be able to afford. These tables will offer students alternative workplaces for group and independent work.
My experience, after having taught for ten years, is teachers need to be flexible and be able to anticipate the needs of their students.
While some students thrive sitting in traditional desks, others need alternative options. Third-grade students are able to advocate for own their needs and can decide where they learn best. By providing these types of spaces, students tend to be more motivated to complete their work.
