My Students

Welcome! I teach 4th grade at a small school located in eastern North Carolina. We are a strong military community. Many of the students in our school come from low-income families with approximately 74% of the children receiving free and reduced lunch. This year our county schools and student's homes were effected by a Hurricane. Still our students come to school everyday ready to learn, and they really deserve learning materials that encourage learning and keeps them engaged. In advance I thank you for your support!

My Project

Students are engaged and learn best when they can touch it, feel it, and draw it!

Help me give students the gift of hands-on learning where they can practice the much-needed skill - Trail and Error.

Students will learn to adopt a growth mindset while learning what works and what doesn't work with the gridded dry erase boards and solving math facts on dry erase cubes.

Students love anything that deals with dry erase especially when they have the ability to create, reevaluate and try again during Trial and Error analysis.

The dry erase boards and cubes will also be an assest during collaborative learning with their classmates. Thank you for helping my students!
