My Students

My students are simply the best! The one thing that makes our classroom so special is our diversity! We love to celebrate our differences. Every child comes to school each day with different needs but we all LOVE to learn together. I am so lucky to get to spend my days teaching, learning, and laughing with this class! I wish that you could spend a day In our class because I know you would never want to leave. Please consider helping us out. No donation is too small! Thank you!

My Project

Do you have to sit at a desk all day when working? It's not fun, is it? Do you find yourself having to get up, walk around, tap your foot, etc? Research shows that movement gets the brain working! In order to promote movement in our first-grade classroom, the five tractor stools will allow students to move around while working in guided groups. We work in guided groups throughout the day in math, writing, reading, and during special products. Having these stools allows students to move while working. Having access to tractor stools within the classroom provides a more kinesthetic and healthy learning environment that is more developmentally appropriate for young learners. In addition, it will help my first-grade students focus on the task and build their stamina for completing work.
