My Students

I am a first year teacher hoping to make a great impact on my students lives. I want to make sure that my 27 fourth graders have great opportunities to learn with necessary materials to make their learning better. Having a larger classroom, my group of students have various needs that I want to support throughout their fourth grade education.

I am excited to develop my students into a group of students that not only learn, but enjoy learning!

With your help, I can ensure that my students will become a group of life-long learners.

My Project

With my project, I am hoping to enhance student learning by giving my students flexibility across my classroom. The clipboards and the pillows in my project will help the students to learn around the classroom and not have to sit just in their seat to learn. This helps students to be more free when they are learning instead of being confined to their desk and chair. We already have a set of LED lights in the classroom and my students love to have it on and it helps them to focus, so having another set will continue to help me do this in another part of the classroom! With winter coming up, I want to make sure I have a clean room which is what the vacuum will be for! Thank you for taking your time to look through my project!
