My Students

My students work in a team-taught atmosphere and spend a ton of time together. We study Shakespeare (with costumes and props—the way it was meant to be read), read a lot of books, and are working to become excellent writers.

The students in my classroom see themselves on a learning continuum that always has endless space for improvement.

We read and write in class every day and love to do those things in diverse places; we can often be seen traveling around the school building and outside. We'll look anywhere for inspiration!

My Project

The motto for a lot of teachers I know is "Maslow Before Bloom," which means that before you can dazzle students with your amazing materials and inspire them with your lessons, they need to have their basic needs met.

In order to address those needs, I have a "student needs center" at the front of my classroom that has many of the little things kids need to take care of themselves, such as hair ties, small breakfast items, tissues, a lint roller (and you would be amazed at how often they use it!) and basic first aid supplies.

We are requesting healthy snack items to help my students focus when lunch seems far away. Some of my students begin class at 7:55 am and don't have lunch until 1:07, and lunch can often feel VERY far away! Having some snacks available in the classroom helps get students over that mid-morning hump and renews their focus until lunchtime.

These may seem like random creature comforts, but students who experience homelessness or are in transition from one household to another often don't have access to many of the little things we often take for granted.

Knowing that they can grab a bite to eat in my classroom or grab a band-aid or a hair tie without having to go through the sometimes uncomfortable experience of asking someone, can help ease a student's anxiety as they go through their day. Anything that makes a kid feel more at home in my classroom is a win for me.
