My Students

My classroom is made up of a diverse group of students, as is the entire elementary school. My students come from a variety of backgrounds. Our school qualifies for Title I funding, which means many of the students I teach come from low-income homes. Many of these students face difficulties that most could not begin to imagine. The students in my classroom also are very diverse in their academic abilities. I have students that read on an 8th grade level mixed in with students who read at or below a 2nd grade level. While celebrating and incorporating all students' experiences, I also strive to meet our school's STEAM standards. STEAM integration places focus on science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics to create a rich and meaningful learning environment for students from all walks of life.

"In diversity there is beauty and there is strength.”

– Maya Angelou

Each of my students brings joy to the hearts of those around them and are continuously determined to do their best. They deserve as much love and opportunity as possible!

My Project

Help support my students as I begin to build my classroom!

As a first year teacher, I am accumulating all of the essential supplies that I will need for years to come to make my classroom as functional and comfortable for my students as possible.

With a white board easel, I have more writing space to give students the visual representations many learners need to succeed.

Carts and drawers for organization give all of my students' important files and information a place to live (without getting lost).

A class set of white boards make for a much wider array of learning experiences that will engage students!
