My Students

My students come to school every day full of life and eager to learn. I teach a Third grade inclusion class where there are many different learning styles and individual student needs. My students are energetic and have a love for learning despite the many hardships they face daily. They often view school as their escape from the real world and it would be amazing to create a fun and safe learning environment for them that truly meets their needs. They will be so grateful for your donations and support.

My Project

Currently we have one sharpener in the class. It is an old pencil sharpener that I used when I was a little kid. I want my students to be able to sharpen their pencils and quickly get back to work.

Currently students spend a lot of time using hand held sharpeners to sharpen pencils and colored pencils.

Having two electric pencil sharpeners will help reduce that time and get my students back to their work. The extra pencils will come in handy for the state test coming up. The crayon sharpener will also help our classroom. We have a ton of crayons that are never used because they are dull. It will help bring new life to old crayons and keep our supply going.
