My Students

I love my students because they inspire me to be the best teacher I can be. They help me to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. They are a spirited, creative and loving bunch of kiddos.

My students love to push themselves.

They love a challenge. They need activities that foster their love of learning and keep them engaged!

I am blessed to work with these kids each day. They make me happy to come to work, and every day holds a new adventure for us to discover!

My Project

My students need Hot Dots Talking Pens to use during independent learning time. The pens "talk" to the students to let them know if they choose the correct answer or not on the activity cards. I am asking for ELA and math Hot Dots Card Sets for a variety of skills and differentiation.

My students love all types of hands-on activities!

The pens will allow for practicing math and literacy in an engaging and meaningful way. By donating to this project, you will help increase student attention and focus as well as foster a love of learning. Ultimately, students of all skill levels will experience autonomy and valuable practice.
