My Students

I am the lucky teacher of 25 unique first graders. They come from many different backgrounds and experiences, but each child has at least one thing in common - they all love coming to school each morning.

"Leadership is the challenge to be something more than average." Leadership opportunities need to be available, taught, and practiced.

We start each morning with an emphasis on relationship building. During this time we share stories, sing songs, and greet one another with a smile and a cheer. These students are learning necessary skills such as the ability to collaborate and disagree politely. These skills pour over into our classroom lessons and on the playground. My students are becoming stronger leaders day by day.

Our school has a limited budget available for teachers to buy materials. I want my students to get the best possible education. I believe that a true love of learning starts in the early years. My goal is to inspire these first graders to create an even better and brighter future.

My Project

My students are outgoing, energetic, and expressive young first graders. They would highly benefit from performing in a class play.

This project with help with both my students academics as well as their social emotional needs.

The script will encourage reading with fluency, accuracy, and expression and the costumes will help bring the play to life.

Theater is known to help boost confidence as well as overall excitement in going to school. By performing a play, the students will also learn life skills, such as self-control, collaboration and responsibility. Through this project I hope to inspire the arts at a young age.
