My Students

My students are very energetic, eager, and developing learners. I never have seen a group of students that ask for more work. We all have very high expectations and believe that with education we will go to all the places we want to go.

My classroom consist of a significant percentage of students’ that perform below grade level in reading and math.

Challenges include students who speak English as a Second Language and Special Education. They love learning through hands-on materials, games, and technology. My love for teaching has really grown this year due to their willing and ability to increase their knowledge.

My Project

Creating and purchasing items for the classroom is very difficult to achieve on a teacher's salary. These resources will have an everlasting impact on my students as well as classroom management. I am looking forward to seeing the students actively engaged at the learning centers by using creative and up-to-date resources. Each day the students ask to attend centers,which really brightens my day!! However, it is very difficult to provide the students with a variety of centers every week. Enough though the task has been challenging, with the cooperation and support of Donors as well as myself, this load will be weaken.

Education is a field that really takes a lot of time, efforts, and support.

The Small Group Nonfiction Comprehension Folders , Math Activity Center, Reading Information Text Learning Center for Common Core and Boost Comprehension: Small Group Teaching Center will enable to students to work independently while engaging in meaningful lessons. Through your support you will teach my students that education will take you all the places you can go. Let's make our future brighter!!
