My Students

I am a fourth-grade teacher at a high poverty/low-income school district. At our school, we refer to each other as family. Every morning, teachers and students greet each other with an excitement to begin the day.

Although my students face many challenges outside of the classroom, they are some of the most inquisitive and sweetest young people you'll ever meet.

Every day is an adventure. We laugh, we learn, and we grow together. My class is full of students that are eager to learn and passionate about life.

My Project

I am asking for a large area rug so my students have a comfy place to sit while participating in our class meetings and read alouds. Currently the my class is sitting on the tile floor each time we gather together for our Daily 5 mini-lessons and shared story time. I would love for them to have a soft rug to sit on while listening to our daily books.

I am also asking for a air purifier to help keep our air clean in the classroom.

Allergens and bacteria can wreck havoc in a classroom full of kids. I would like to keep everyone as healthy I can so we can use our time to learn and grow.

In addition to an area rug and air purifier, I am also asking for toner cartridges for the classroom printer and a new set of whiteboards and erasers. My students are in desperate need of new whiteboards and erasers. Currently some of our whiteboards are broken or cracked making it hard for the kids to write.
