My Students

My students are an exciting, kind, and motivated group of fifth and sixth graders. Each student I work with has their own individualized needs and learning styles that I need to accommodate to help them become successful. They are always motivated to come to school and try their very best. I am very lucky to be surrounded by such supporting staff and students that work their very best each day! These students deserve the best learning materials and so we can have the best year!

My Project

My fifth and sixth-grade students need a kidney table to work effectively in a small group. They benefit from direct, differentiated small group instruction in both math and reading. This kidney table would allow me to work with students in small groups who need extra assistance or during guided reading groups where instruction can be differentiated to fit each student's needs. Currently, we are at a small table with very limited space to work closely 1:1. With this table, we would be able to work comfortably and increase our learning time together. By donating to my project you will be able to help students learn in a space that is inviting and cozy so they can focus on their reading and math!
