My Students

I’m at a school where we are 1 to 1 with technology! I’m excited to help my students learn 21st century skills to better prepare them for the real world. Through a variety of strategies, my students are learning new and exciting things every day!

My students are learning to be the leaders of their own lives as well as in the community.

They are creative and determined to succeed. They are the reason I love coming to work and I can’t wait to continue to watch them grow. They work hard every day in the classroom to achieve goals and inspire me daily!

My Project

I have chosen items for this project to help my students be successful in 3rd grade. In my classroom we must stay organized to be successful. The mailboxes for my classroom will help guarantee my students' important papers make it home to their families. It is important to the communication between school and families. Class sets of books are extremely important to the learning in my classroom. Since I do not use textbooks, my students and I use trade books and other forms of literature to teach the standards. The book "Because of Winn Dixie" and "Charlotte's Web" will help my students grow as readers. My goal is to supply my students with what they need to learn at school. Through this project I can supply my students with the things they need so that they can continue to grow as leaders in our community.
