My Students

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose!" - Dr. Seuss

My students are wiggling children who love to learn.

In the case of most of my students, they need to wiggle to listen. My students come from all different home lives. They don't fit into a perfect little box, nor should they. Students should be free to be who they are without the fear of the outside world.

My Project

Our classroom is in need of all of these items to help our day to day life. We use a air diffuser in the room to help fight off sickness, headaches, and keep a nice smell. We are currently running low on essential oils for our diffuser and are in need of more. The Expo markers will help replace our old markers that are dull and running out of ink. The students use these markers on our white boards to do quick review and learn how to write letters. Most importantly, the ink will supply our classroom printer. This is where I print off our classroom activities, tests, newsletters, and so much more.
