My Students

I teach marvelous second grade students at a Title I school, and they come very diverse backgrounds. A lot of my students can come from difficult circumstances, but they never let that control their education. They show up to school 100% ready to learn and prepared to work hard.

My students are eager, curious, and hungry for knowledge!

They are always learning new things everyday whether that be from their teachers, their peers, or from themselves. They understand the importance of their education, and they are always curious and excited on finding ways to expand on it and use it to help themselves grow as young individuals.

My Project

My students are very young individuals. Not only do they need to learn information to become successful in the future, they also need to learn organizational skills. The information taught in my class is college and career readiness material. The students are learning information to become successful in the future, but the most important skill they will need to learn is organization.

Organization is a key item to success!

In our everyday lives, we have to have organization. With the seat organizers it will help our students understand the importance of organization by helping them keep their materials organized for class. By learning these skills so much earlier in their educational career, it is preparing them for great success in future grades and even in college. The seat organizers will give them an advantage to see how organization works and how to maintain it. They will not only use the organizers, but understand its importance. By beginning this skill now, they will be able to better focus on their academics, be better prepared for class, and overall have success in their educational careers. This item can be a key factor in their future endeavors in school.
