My Students

Our Title I school serves students in grades K-8 and provides rigorous academics to allow students to advance and excel as they are our future leaders. I currently teach sixth-grade special education. My students all have different learning styles and can benefit from many accommodations and supports. My students come from poor income households and live in foster homes and shelters.

My students are eager learners who are willing to work hard to reach their goals.

They enjoy working together, using technology and have a strong love for learning. My goal is to always inspire my students and provide a strong, positive, and successful learning environment for them to excel and succeed!

My Project

In today's society, it is extremely beneficial to maintain and keep classrooms clean. Our classroom is pretty big, and requires cleaning at the end of each school day. We do many activities in our classroom and will benefit from the resources needed to maintain and keep our room neat and clean.

Many of my students have allergies and benefit from a clean classroom.

We have a dry erase table that we need to clean at the end of each day. Therefore, EXPO cleaners and wipes will allow us to clean our tables and whiteboards. We also have a carpet in our room that needs to be vacuumed daily. The students in my classroom sit on this carpet daily, and it does not cleaned everyday as we do not have access to a vacuum. Also, it gets very hot and warm in our classroom. My students are always asking to open a window, and it instantly becomes too cold, so we have to close it. With the use of a fan, we can keep our classroom clean and not have to open windows.
