My Students

In my class, we say that it's not Disneyland but Miss Tyler's classroom that is the "happiest place on earth." Learning in one place just doesn't happen in our classroom. Students are constantly moving locations and changing places to stay engaged and involved in the learning that takes place.

My school is special in the fact that it is a Title I School, and it is the same district I went to school in.

It feels so wonderful to be a part of the community I have been a part of for the last three decades.

It is truly my opinion that my students deserve a classroom that is not only engaging to learn in but is a place that they desire to be. I want my classroom to be a unique learning environment; my students need a place where they feel inspired and where their creativity can take flight! If it isn't a place where I would want to learn and spend my time, then I think it's safe to say that my students wouldn't either.

My Project

Having two new bookshelves in our classroom library will allow us to have more space to shelf our books. I have been so lucky to have had so many books donated to our classroom over the last few years for my students to choose from and read. Unfortunately, the bookshelves that came with my classroom do not provide us with enough space to put all of the books out on the shelves. The current bookshelves we have now are also falling apart. So I'd love two new ones to not only hold all of the books we have, but to make our library look more beautiful as well!
