My Students

My students come to school everyday ready to learn. They are excited, hopeful, and resilient. Our school was completely damaged due to Hurricane Harvey. We lost our school, but majority of my students also lost their homes. We have been displaced since August. We have already moved twice this year and plan on moving into portable buildings in February.

Our school community is small but loaded with determination and pride.

I teach 41 students a day. I teach reading, writing and social studies. We are a public school in a low economic community. My students are some of the most strongest, tenacious and flexible kids I have ever seen. The storm may have taken their normalcy, homes and school but it didn't take pride and determination.

My Project

We lost all of our classroom furniture in Hurricane Harvey. We will be moving to portables soon and need a place to put all of our supplies.

Help us get organized!

This storage cubby will serve as a place to find supplies and Daily 5 activities. It will store daily supplies as glue, scissors, pencils, erasers. It will also hold Daily 5 activities as Hot Dots, journals, and file folder activities. We are currently in school now at the Junior High but we are struggling daily to be organized. We need some organization and this storage device will help us greatly.
