My Students

I have taught first grade for 8 years. I love teaching because I enjoy building a rapport with my students and helping them develop a love for learning. All students at my school receive free breakfast and lunch because so many of our students come from a lower economic background.

My students work hard in the classroom every day and I want to provide them with the best educational experience and assist them in being successful.

They are an energetic and inquisitive group of kids with an eagerness to learn. Please consider making a donation and helping my students. Thanks for taking the time to visit my page!

My Project

At the beginning of the school year my students walk into the classroom excited to use their brand new supplies. However, that excitement usually gets cut short in just a week or so when they misplace their favorite pencil or marker. My little ones are just six and seven years old, so they are still learning how to keep up with their belongings. If my students had their own individual caddies it would help them keep track of their supplies.

My students need individual caddies so that their supplies are accessible as well.

They use pencils, crayons, markers, glue, and scissors on a regular basis and in all subject areas. When they have to dig in their cubby or chair pocket for these materials, valuable instruction and learning time is lost. My students need their own caddies so that they can be ready to complete an assignment no matter which school supply is required.

Thank you so much for reading about my project. I hope you consider making a donation and supporting my students. Now let’s get organized!
