My Students

I teach 120 students that range from 1st – 5th grade at two different schools. One school is located in a rural area, while the other school is located next to a Military Base. My students have been identified as advanced learners and they represent a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds. They come to class with a tremendous amount of curiosity and an excitement for learning, especially when they are actively engaged in learning activities.

My students thrive as they collaborate in small groups with brain stretching activities and project based learning.

I strive to provide a classroom environment where students feel safe to take chances and learn from their mistakes - try and try again! We continually focus on the importance of a growth mindset so that they never give up, even when things get challenging.

My Project

I am requesting Clorox Wipes, Lysol disinfectant spray and hand sanitizer to help keep our classroom resources such as pencils, chairs, tables, markers, and computer keyboards clean and "germ free."

With the flu hitting our school hard, we need to take extra precautions to help prevent the spread of germs.

In order to clean the community supplies and tables everyday, I need some more classroom cleaning supplies. With the students sharing tables and supplies, everything needs to be wiped down after each class. The Lysol Automatic Spray Gadget will automatically release sanitizing spray throughout the day and help keep our classroom air fresh and clean.
