My Students

My students come with a variety of different learning styles and personalities. They are willing to learn and take on new challenges each and every day. My students bring joy to my classroom every day! There is always something new they bring to my class whether it's about school material or just random stuff that has happened outside of school.

I love being able to build a relationship with my students because it shows me all the different type of personalities we have in today's world.

My students have so much to offer their school and the rest of the world once they graduate. I love to see my students grow during the year in either academics or their overall personal growth. My students teach me just as much as I teach them every day and I really enjoy that.

I have students who love to work in groups and I have others who prefer to work alone. I have students who have told me they learn better with hands-on activities instead of just lecture notes. My students take part in a lot of interactive notebook activities which allows them to be active in the classroom and work in groups.

My Project

The materials will allow my students to be able to continue working on interactive notebooks during my class. Interactive notebooks are a hands-on activity that allows students to work in groups and helps them review their notes for their test. The notebooks will help my students who come to school without any materials. They will be given a notebook so they can write notes and have paper during class. The tissues and hand sanitizer are for my students when they get sick so they don't have to use the hard paper towels in the bathroom to blow their noses.
