My Students

My third graders are inquisitive and eager to learn. I am constantly looking for new ways to bring the magic of learning into our classroom so that my students can become lifelong learners. A typical day in our classroom is filled with smiles, growth, and enjoyment. I love to utilize innovative ways to help my students learn and retain new information.

Throughout the school year, my students have amazed me with their ability to take on challenges, demonstrate kindness, work collaboratively, and support one another as they learn and grow.

It is my goal to provide them with as many meaningful and memorable learning experiences as I can. I want to both engage and challenge my students each day.

My Project

My classroom library is one of my favorite parts of my classroom. I think my students would agree! I work hard to stock our library with books that interest my students. The current baskets that hold our books are falling apart from years of use.

With your help, I can give these books an updated and more organized home so students can easily search through our classroom library.

With these bins, I will sort the books by popular authors, genres, themes, and series. My goal is to have over 30 book bins organized and clearly labeled so students can easily find the book of their choosing. With these sturdy, organized baskets, students will have more time to enjoy the books they love!
