My Students

Hi! I have been teaching for ten years and I have personally witnessed a huge evolution in how children learn best inside today's classroom. I am lucky to teach first grade at a Title 1 school in the best school district in the world!

My campus is a neighborhood school surrounded predominately by low-income housing and apartments.

83% of my student population qualifies for free and reduced lunch, while 100% of the school receives free breakfast. Since our students come to school less prepared than most students, I find myself spending tons of money out of pocket to provide basic supplies for my students for the school year, such as pencils, crayons, backpacks​, erasers, dry erase markers, and glue sticks. As a result, I find myself unable to purchase classroom items that will benefit my students, such as flexible seating options, storage containers, and more.

The best part about my job is the stability that my classroom provides for students who lack stable home environments. I get the opportunity to make my classroom double as a learning environment and a safe haven for my students to enjoy being a part of. I love my Title 1 family and community.

My Project

These materials will allow my busy little first graders to take learning on the go within our classroom. While I am busy running guided reading groups or ELD instruction, my other students can grab center work and go find a comfortable place to complete it. This improves focus so that my students can maximize learning.

Students will complete word work activities, writing centers, spelling, and mathematics centers on the clipboards.

Students will clip writing centers onto the clipboards to complete them, while they can use the dry erase clipboard to help them spell tricky words before writing them on the paper itself. This will allow my first graders​ to improve writing skills.
