My Students

I know every teacher thinks this, but seriously, my class is extra special. They are so incredibly smart and diverse. Best of all, they are unbelievably eager to do their best and push themselves. They want to please me and their parents. Most importantly, they want to do well for themselves.

I’m so grateful for each and every one of my kiddos!

I hope we can work together to help them even more on their road to greatness! Thank you for taking the time to read this!

My Project

These materials will make a major difference in my diverse and incredible classroom. My fantastic students will greatly benefit from flexible seating options because it gives them another great opportunity to learn in a comfortable and enjoyable way. The other materials are things like alphabet beads, sentence strips and alpha-bots that will help make learning lots of fun for each and every student in my classroom. I know that I learn best when I enjoy how the content is being delivered. I deeply believe that the same concept applies to my beautiful students. Thanks so much for taking the time to listen to my plea.
