My Students

I have the most amazing students in my classroom. They face so many obstacles in and out of the classroom. However, they have such positive attitudes and big smiles on their faces when they enter the classroom every day.

I make each one of them feel special every day.

For many, school is the only place they will receive meals and a warm loving environment. I try to make school a place they want to come to every single day so they are excited about it!

My Project

My room would love to have a classroom supply of pencils and composition notebooks.

Just having a couple of pencils in our desks would make such a difference to us.

My students have so many different things to worry about outside the classroom. Just them knowing that they have everything they need in their desk to start their day would be amazing. They could each have a couple pencils of their own in their backpacks to help with homework at night too. The composition notebooks would be great for completing all their assignments and taking notes in different subjects in the classroom.
