My Students

I have some of the hardest working third graders. They live in a very rough neighborhood on the east side of Indianapolis, but they do not let that get in the way of their education. My students have a desire to learn and do not let the distractions of their home lives get in the way of that.

Our school strives to push students to their full potential with a special focus on reading and math.

We are a Title I School with limited resources; yet, our students strive to be the absolute best. Last school year, we far exceeded most schools in the district. It was the best year our school has ever had! This was achieved through hard work from both teachers and students.

My Project

My scholars have worked SO hard ALL year long. We are about to start our long and difficult testing season, as well as finishing out our school year. My scholars need some motivation to continue working their absolute hardest.

"Believe you can, and your are halfway there." This quote has really inspired me this year to continuously help my scholars feel as if they can achieve ANYTHING they set their minds to.

Kids get stressed out, just like adults do! Kids need inspiration and motivation, just like adults do! I strive each year to provide my scholars with a small motivational treat each day during our stressful season to help keep them believing and confident. With my growing class list, this is rather difficult for me to accomplish alone.

The small candy treats will be paired with a happy note for each child to give them a little "hope" during their stressful moments. The wipes will be used to keep our hands clean and faces refreshed. The pencils are to continue offering pencils to scholars in need- boy, they sure go through a LOT of pencils through the course of the year.

Please join me in helping my scholars believe, "anything is possible, anything can be!"
