My Students

My students are so smart and kind, future leaders that will make a difference in the world. They are curious about life, learning and how to help others. They are at an older school in Idaho and they are such little lights that overcome adversity. They are resilient and always try their hardest. They live by the motto, "You were made to be AWESOME!" They work hard to be the change we need in the world. They spread kindness and are role models for their younger friends.

My Project

I would like to obtain these items to help my students understand content through read aloud's. I also need to have a few classroom supplies that will help me as a teacher. There are things that a first year teacher can't afford, but needs in order to make things easier. I know that students appreciate the books that I read aloud to them because it helps them connect what they are learning to other things in their lives. I need other supplies that will help me prep, store and execute teaching my fabulous fifth graders. Thank you for your time, I appreciate any donation.
