My Students

I teach in a third grade classroom full of 26 students. They are hilarious. They are curious. They are loving. They are so many things... but what they definitely are is deserving of a classroom full of materials that will help keep them engaged in a safe, fun learning environment.

I have the best job in the world: to educate and inspire the future of America.

I don't ever want to forget that that is the ultimate goal. These kids are amazing, and deserve a classroom that will foster a love of learning for years to come.

My Project

As winter turns to spring and students begin to play outside more often, we are in need of some new recess equipment! Once March rolls around, the equipment begins to become worn out, or they simply disappear. New equipment will be the hit of recess!

New materials will make a world of a difference in these students' lives!

Please help us by funding these replacement needs. With state testing taking place on our class Chromebooks, these headphones are much needed. Please help us purchase balls to play with, replacement homework folders for those that are ripped, and some replacement headphones to use with classroom technology.
