My Students

"The Stars are the Limit!" is a common saying I use in my classroom of brilliant, vivacious sixth grade middle school students. My students are the most amazing, creative, talented, caring individuals that are capable of doing anything that they put their mind to!

I teach in a low income, high poverty Title I middle school, where unfortunate challenges have been faced by many of my students.

Their capabilities and strengths to succeed are truly inspirational. My population consists of general education students, students with disabilities and English as a Second Language learners. The diversity in my classroom brings out their desire to work hard and to accept differences.

My Project

We need new dry erase markers, crayons, glue, markers, gel pens, and construction paper to create the coolest, innovative projects that focus on the Ancient Civilizations. Creative art projects and brightly colored notes that have pictures come alive often help students become successful learners. In my classroom, students use tons of colored construction paper, create notes in interactive notebooks and participate in Doodle notes using gel pens. Let's not forget the use of white boards in the classroom as well! Oh, how students love the use of white boards and colored dry erase markers to answer questions as a class!

As a Title I school, students often come to school without the basic materials used in class.

With our limited school budget, new materials are often limited. By having these new art supplies, my students will be excited to not only come to class but to learn in a highly motivated, well cared for environment. Thank you for your support!
