My Students

In a city known for its challenges, my primary goal is to provide my students with a safe and rigorous environment where they can take the many skills taught in the classroom to a successful future ahead.

I teach a group of 34 fourth-grade students with a combination of various special needs students mainstreamed within.

My students are a very energetic, inquisitive, and highly motivated group. They absolutely love to learn new information in a tactile and hands-on way.

One thing that sets my group of students apart is their motivation and drive to make this world a better place. They strive for change and to make a positive impact on society. At such a young age, they are already able to describe how their future actions will affect those around them. With such a positive outlook on their future, it is my duty to provide my students with enriching activities that will make them productive future scholars in society.

Through the help of, I hope to be able to provide more learning opportunities for my students through the use of materials that are not easily accessible in public education.

My Project

My students are in need of new classroom borders, wall accents, posters, and pocket charts in order to start our 2018 school year! All of these items will be used to liven the classroom experience for my students!

With these items, my students will be able to walk into our classroom and feel a sense of positivity and warmth with the bright colors and atmosphere, encouraging the overall learning experience!

The borders requested will help bring a pop of color to our classroom walls! The posters will be used to display our classroom management program, so that my students can be reinforced with the rules and rewards. The motivational posters and wall accents will help remind my students of how much potential they have!

The pocket charts will be used as organizational items for our classroom. The pocket charts will help store our taught concepts and higher tiered vocabulary words.

All of the requested items will add to the overall positive learning environment for my students! The bright colors will help reinforce a happy, safe, and welcoming learning environment for all who enter!
