My Students

The students in my classroom are very eager to learn and explore the world around them. They love coming to school every day to find out what we are going to do. I try to make learning fun for them so that they keep enjoying it. For most them, this is their first year in school and I want to be able to make it memorable.

My students come from a diverse population in a large city in Alaska.

For many of them, English is their second language. I want to be able to help my students have a successful year by providing them with materials to help grow and have a fun year at school.

I am excited to be able to provide my students with more materials to make their year full of learning opportunities.

My Project

I want my students to learn how to work together in an environment that is calm and accepting by all everyone. I believe that LEGOS will help my students be able to think outside the box and well as work as a team to work on STEM projects while in the classroom. The Magic Tree House Books will provide rich education for my students to be able to read books that they normally don't have the opportunity to read. I also want my students to be able to learn how to handle their feelings and how to treat others in the classroom.
