My Students

My students are rock stars. Since the COVID-19 closure of our school, I am now helping teaching over 100 fifth grade students at our school. We have had so many amazing memories. Even though this year was cut short for classroom time, I don't want that to stop the memories from being made.

Throughout this whole coronavirus experience, they have stayed strong and positive.

Their resilience and ability to adapt is inspiring. Students meet with me every day on zoom meetings and though messaging me when they need help.

We enjoy seeing each other, playing online zoom meeting games, and just being silly together. I have a very close-knit group of students where our relationships are strong and caring. I want to make sure I keep on rocking out with my students online!

My Project

Since we have been remote teaching, we need better equipment to create quality lessons for our students. The camera stand, lights, and microphone will help me create quality video lessons for my students. They will benefit from engaging, quality videos with the equipment requested.

My students deserve high-quality videos lessons that they can complete on their own time during this pandemic.

It has been challenging to produce meaningful lessons for the student with the equipment that was provided. With these supplies, I hope to create meaningful and memory-filled lessons! The letters will be set out to my whole class to show how much I care about them and miss them!
