My Students

My classroom is a fun and energetic place full of students ready to move into 3rd grade. This year I am so excited to loop into 3rd grade with my students and experience a whole new year with them. We are into our 5th year as a project-based environment, where the students guide their own learning and reach their own goals. When my students enter my classroom they are in a safe learning environment where mistakes are okay. Whenever we learn something new, I tell them that "try your best, if you make a mistake we will fix it together."

My students are hard working and enjoy working through the daily tasks that are handed to them.

Many of them face hard home lives so my classroom is made to be a safe and friendly learning community.

My Project

Here, we celebrate our students and the success. Every few months we host a family exhibition to show our students projects. We need lamination to help display nicely done projects that are protected. As a school we will use the lamination to help protect our projects. We are a project based school and our students take pride in the projects they finish. The students, in all grade levels, complete projects as teams that consist of pictures, art, posters, and writing.

Our students projects are important and they spend hours working on them, the so the lamination will help protect them.

I am so excited to get lamination to help protect those projects.
