My Students

My day is always exciting. Supporting classrooms with 4th through seventh graders is fun and challenging. Every group is so different, and it is so much fun getting to know them all!

At our school, students are process-driven, motivated, and encouraging with ourselves and each other.

We work with kids who struggle, developing learners, and students who are ready for a challenge in small groups. These students have so much potential. They excel in a small group environment. Small group is perfect for these students because they get the individual attention they need and that does not always occur in a class of 30 students. They have come so far. We work on specific standards and foundational skills that they might have missed to fill in the gaps and push students further!

My Project

My students need the basic supplies for learning! It's that time of the year when supplies are running low and running out. It's time for a refill! Students will benefit from the basics we need to make our curriculum come to life. Students will use these supplies on a daily basis in our Wit & Wisdom and Eureka math lessons. Students need basic supplies to complete our exit tickets on a daily basis.

Help support my students with the basic supplies that make learning possible!

We need supplies like pencils, markers, dry erase boards, and cleaning wipes to keep germs away and learning happening. Many students come to school without the basics and it can hold us back in the classroom. By donating, you can help provide the basic necessities for students to learn and grow. By being able to provide small things like pencils, we can raise the confidence and help support all students.
