My Students

My students are a diverse group of wonderful students. Some of them speak English as a second language, some have learning disabilities, and others are achieving beyond grade level expectations. More than 99% of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

Even with hardships, my students are eager to learn!

I love the hugs and smiles they provide me each morning as they enter the classroom. They have hearts of gold and minds that soak up everything I teach!

My Project

I am excited about the new year and the opportunity to really prepare my students. Every year they come in eager to learn, so I am sure this year will be the same. As a teacher, I want to provide my students with all the resources to make their year great!

My students need to be engaged in reading activities during all times of the day!

I have requested a classroom subscription to Scholastic News magazine so my students can become engaged with news and science topics while they build their reading skills.

The dry erase whiteboards and erasers will help keep the students engaged during this time so they can share out their answers and thoughts as we learn.

Sometimes learning can get tiring, so I want to start the year off right and build my resources to ensure my students can enjoy learning ALL day LONG! They will be so excited to get a whiteboard and marker of their own on the first day of school. The extra set of dry erase markers will help us use our whiteboards all year long (even when the students press too hard or lose a top)! These resources will provide my students with great learning opportunities this year.
