My Students

My students are eager learners who are full of questions! They attend an SAS school (School for Advanced Studies) in Woodland Hills, California. All the students work very diligently to achieve the high exceptions the school sets. They love hands-on, active, engaging projects that challenge them and encourage them to think outside the box. They are young learners who are finding their own voices and also learning to understand others' opinions.

My students are learning to communicate effectively with their peers and they need a comfortable, safe place to achieve this goal.

These young children are such a pleasure to teach. Their eagerness is contagious and I love being in the classroom with them! I love giving my students a safe and fun place to learn and grow. I am very lucky to have such a sweet group of children in my classroom!

My Project

Part of being in school, especially in a primary grade-level, is learning to become organized and take responsibility for your materials, whether they are your personal items or supplies provided by the classroom. My students will learn to be organized and keep track of their homework and supplies.

In order to help my students achieve this organized independence, I need to give them a safe and clean place to hang up their backpacks, jackets, and lunches.

With a class of 24 (and sometimes more) students, it becomes very crowded and overwhelming with all the backpacks, jackets, and lunches in the classroom. There are no hooks inside for them to hang their items up, and when the students hang their backpacks on their chairs, the chairs sometimes tip backwards from the weight. This becomes a safety issue, as students can easily trip over the bags and chairs. It also makes it very difficult for the teacher to walk through the classroom and monitor learning.

The children deserve a clean place to hang their personal belongings. This also helps the students have peace of mind knowing that their backpacks are in their designated place, not being stepped on, laying on the dirty floor outside, or getting lost in a pile of bags on the ground. They can keep their items organized and in their place and focus on learning!
