My Students

Our class is filled with fifth graders who are eager to learn daily! While growing up in the inner city has its challenges, our fifth graders push through their adversity as they engage in literacy, and explore science and math. Their desire to become more and surpass their circumstances makes teaching exciting!

As a product of this very district, investing into my students is investing into the community that gave me an opportunity.

These children are just as capable as their counterparts in other districts. They just need the same access to a plethora of resources to help level the playing field.

My Project

The new rug will provide students with ample space to complete independent as well as group work. It is important that students have an alternative space to learn. As students have different needs, the carpet will allow an area to instruct small groups with space to fit their materials.

I can't wait to hear the discourse between groups of students as they discuss their learning on this new carpet!

It will also serve as a space where students can create projects and explore their learning. My students will truly appreciate this flexible space for projects in literacy, math, and social studies!
