My Students

I have a diverse group of 18 students from a wide range of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Being a good teacher, in my opinion, not only means doing everything I can to help each individual student become successful and productive members in society but also to ensure each child feels loved and cared for.

In today's society, it is critical that children understand that it doesn't matter where we come from because anybody can be successful if they put their mind to it.

Nothing worth having comes easy, and you have to keep climbing that mountain every day, no matter how challenging it may be, in order to reach the top.

My students are truly amazing kids. The best part about my job is that I am able to enjoy coming to my job every day because these kids make it worth it.

My Project

My students currently have 5 wobble chairs. We had a couch, 5 bean bags, and 2 pillows with a few blankets. However, after Hurricane Florence, our school had to send off our cushions and blankets, even some carpets, to be professionally cleaned, possibly even thrown away.

I want to provide a comfortable learning environment for my students where they have opportunities to grow and learn together.

The wobble chairs will, for example, will assist my students who fidget and can't seem to sit still. They do very well with these because it gives them a little wiggle room without distracting the other students. The bean bags and pillows would be for independent reading or center time when my students move around the room to work independently in stations.

With your support, I will be able to make this possible for my students for the rest of this school year and the years to come.
