My Students

My students are so special! My children come from such poverty that many of us could not imagine, so being at school is safe and comforting. They are loving, chatty, squirrely individuals, who are eager to learn.

We are a Title 1 school with about 98% free and reduced lunches.

Breakfast and snacks are also served daily. The families we serve truly want the best for their children and have entrusted me to provide that for them. So each day is an opportunity to meet their needs educationally, socially, and emotionally. I want to empower my students to make wise choices that will ensure a successful future.

My Project

Movement is what my students need and want. All of these items are geared toward active student learning. Classroom lap desks and portable square cushions will give my students the opportunity to stray from their desks for a comfortable place to work with less distractions. With the amount of energy,​ these students have, the chair bands for all students will be great for the afternoon wiggles! The assorted stools will be used to gather students for small group instruction on chairs their own height! Plus, the extra moving around activates the mind for better learning and engagement. All of these items are to enhance to educational experience!
