My Students

In room 113, students are encouraged to make mistakes and be curious. My students are creative, clever, and very spontaneous. They like to move, explore, and curious about their world. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Third grade--not so little, but not too grown. With an environment that provides students with a nurturing and positive place where they call their own. That is what I am trying to pursue for my students. Students this year has had a difficult time adjusting to the uncertainties that is happening globally around the world. With the excitement of them being back in school and back with their friends, I only hope I can also partake in where I can make them feel at peace. With the materials, I can set an inviting and environment where students are engaged and proactively working with their peers. A place where they can also call their own. These materials not only set a positive classroom environment, it also provides them with flexible seatings around the classroom opposed to traditional classroom seatings. My goal is provide a sanitized and nurturing classroom.
