My Students

My Kindergarteners walk into our classroom every day full of life, and ready to learn. The neat thing about each one of my students is that they come to school ready to take on the world! We are a public elementary school that serves PreK-4th grade and we are located in Northern Minnesota. Our school district is 51% free/reduced price lunch. We are always seeking ways to provide experiences for students at minimal expenses to the families. The focus on our children and their learning is outstanding in our community. I believe with this contribution to our classroom, it will create successful opportunities for a great start to their long educational career.

My Project

The Educational Insights Fluorescent Light Filters are a nice calming affect for students who struggle with the harsh lights. I have seen a significant difference in children complaining of headaches, neck pain and sore eyes since adding a few to my existing classroom.

The Ergo stool will be a great addition to bring flexible seating into my classroom while working with a clipboard or a t a table.

I am seeing growth in the students cores the last few years as I try new ways of learning!

I look forward to growing my collection of resources to meet the needs of each and every individual child.
