My Students

I am the lucky teacher of 23 amazing, smart, fun, energetic, artistic, creative, and amusing third graders. We live in a small, rural community. Our school has a diverse culture. Included in our boundary is a Native American reservation from which a good part of our student body comes.

Our students all qualify for free breakfast and lunch.

Even though our cultures and economic situations are varied, our school is a welcoming place of learning, working together, and providing the best for our children.

My Project

Putty, mini spheres, tangles, and liquid motion bubblers are "toys" that help students with ADHD by keeping their hands busy, which helps to ease stress, and manage fidgeting.

Being able to provide my students with quiet fidget toys will help those that have a hard time focusing.

Having options to use makes it easy for a student to find just the right fidget to help them feel calm, focused and successful.

Also having a Chromebook is an outlet for an ADHD student to use. Here they are able to play various active learning games, as well as use Google to write and document their feelings and emotions. Often students with ADHD have a difficult time writing, typing can be a great alternative for them.

I want to give my students every opportunity to succeed!
