My Students

Some of my students have the most difficult home and financial situations. However, my second graders are always ready to learn and grow when they come to school. I am so proud to know these students and be a part of this school community.

I have had many people tell me that our students are the polite, kind, well behaved, and that one can really tell when a student comes from our school.

We are really lucky to have students who are from families who have also attended here. Our families are very supportive of our faculty and staff. The students are some of the most intelligent young people I have ever met.

My Project

Games give students the opportunity to build community within the classroom. This also allows them to grow friendships as well as teamwork skills needed in daily life. By having these card games available, we can participate in these activities together and come closer as a grade and class. Students will love becoming contestants on Family Feud and guessing what the "survey says."

Students will have the opportunity to use problem solving skills and deductive reasoning skills needed for the future when using these games.

With Taboo, Catch Phrase, and Hot Potato games and batteries to fit, we can practice time management skills. Our classroom will be even more tight-knit than it already is by being such a small group of learners.
