My Students

My students are my world, and they are amazing! Each child is full of potential. They are passionate about learning and passionate about their friendships. My students love coming to school and spending time in our classroom.

Each child has varying interests, abilities, and experiences.

We are a room full of diverse learners. I teach high ability students as well as special education students. Every student is valued in my classroom.

Each child has a desire to learn and do their very best. They are great listeners and take an active role in their learning. They make my job so rewarding.

My Project

My classroom is in desperate need for large chart paper. We use this every single day to practice foundational literacy skills. I use one piece each morning for our morning message. We go over the schedule for the day, what we are learning, and do a quick math problem. When we are done, I give the paper to a child to take home. They think it is the coolest thing ever!

My students write their own how to books and we need an automatic stapler for writing workshop.

They love to write and put their books together but their kindergarten hands have a tough time with a normal stapler. That’s why I would love to get and automatic stapler to set at our writing workshop supply table.

Finally, I need the Lego STEM kit to use during center time. My school is trying to become a STEM certified school and I would love to provide a way that students can do STEM activities on their own.
