My Students

My students are some of the hardest working students This year, I started off as a Kindergarten Teacher. However this past week, I was given the opportunity to be a 5th grade teacher. My students live in Trenton, NJ. My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. In the words of Rita Pierson "Every kids needs a champion!" As a new teacher, I am still working towards building a classroom library and supplies for my students.

I am hoping to make a change in my students lives, they have already been short changed and I want to make sure they are successful.

As their teacher, I want to be the constant source of support and help them to learn and grow. I want to make sure I give the students the tools they need to become a great citizen in their community. Please consider my campaign!

My Project

This project will help students for not only this year. However, this project will help students for many years to come. Through inspirational quotes, pencil bins, games and the document camera; there is multiple ways that my students will be inspired when they enter my classroom. With the reading and math game, my students will be engaged. As a result of their engagement, they will continue to grow academically. In addition, when the content gets hard for some students, they can look at the "Inspiration Posters" and use it as a reinforcement to work hard. Lastly, the document camera will be used to model quality work, and assure all of my students, no matter where they are seeing, can see the work that is being presented.

As a new teacher, I am still learning the different materials that my students need to be successful.

This includes not only physical objects, but inspirational objects around the classroom to ensure my students continue to believe in themselves.
