My Students

We are a creative classroom family of 33 amazing scholars who learn in a variety of ways.

My students are have a growth mindset and enjoy challenges; they are the best students in the world.

With our growth mindset, we can do anything! We value educational experiences, projects, and activities and appreciate every new supply and tool. My students enjoy projects and have a thirst for knowledge. My students rock, and seeing their academic goals and dreams come to life is wonderful. They inspire me every day.

My Project

When students are sick, they miss learning and activities, causing them to fall behind and spread germs to others. Air purifiers that remove germs, allergens, and dust can help support students with asthma while preventing illness in the classroom.

Help me give my students the gift of clean air and healthy days for improved school attendance and sickness-free memories.

These air purifiers will help keep students healthy during California fires, smoggy dusty days, and cold season. When they miss a day they can fall behind and struggle to catch up.

Students will be able to feel their very best with the UV light and air filters running, allowing them to experience all the amazing things we do each day. After all, learning is a breath of fresh air!
