My Students

Our students are very diverse. More importantly, they are at different levels in all subject areas. Our students are very eager and motivated learners who are extremely grateful when given the opportunity to learn and achieve. Our students are wanting to learn more and more everyday. They are very curious as to what they want to be when they grow up. Our kids are curious about the world around them. This is the time we need to expose them to endless amounts of resources and materials. Our student's are just starting out in this big world and already have so much to give.

Teaching students at a high poverty school is not always easy, however, we will not allow statistics to influence their lives.

Our student's will come out on top and they will amount to great things in the future. They are the future and we will make sure we give them the resources needed to make their possibilities endless.

My Project

I am in need of phonics resources that will keep the engagement in our classroom alive. These materials are great for hands on learning. The engagement will drive each student and maximize their learning experience. The smart board software will really reel them in. These resources will allow me to reinforce the reading skills that I teach while in whole group. Once split into literacy centers, students will be able to have guided practice using these phonics sets that will help each child become better readers.

Please help my students embark on this great journey!

Please help them expand on their learning and help give them the tools to continue to strive. The transformation is amazing when these little seeds of mine blossom with the gift of learning!
