My Students

My students are excited to come to school every day. They love to read in the classroom, and are excited to start a take home books reading program. These students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and their education levels vary greatly as well.

My students are very accepting of everyone, regardless of their culture or disability.

Watching them unite and work together to learn is an honor. I continue to strive to be worthy to teach such an amazing group of students.

My Project

I have tried several methods for small groups, with varied success. Looking forward to having the requested ready made organizational chart that will allow me to easily assign tasks/activities according to the wide variety of levels in my classroom.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given fidget toys to help keep them engaged.

These supplies along with the numeric keypads and the organizational chart for math will increase our effectiveness in the classroom, and make it easier to engage the students.

Thank you for helping us to reach our classroom improvement goals.
