Make Your Mark In Class!

My students need children's books to fill our classroom library, a classroom stereo to listen to read aloud books, and a media cart to safely store our technology.

My Students

Benjamin Franklin said, "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn." In order to build a classroom where students are involved in their learning and motivated to participate, I want to provide my class with the best learning materials and experiences with your support!

Do you remember your third grade experience?

Do you remember that teacher who enabled you to reach your highest potential? My goal is to not only teach my students, but make a remarkable impact on their lives. Our school is a culturally and economically diverse public school located in New York. With a wide range of learners, it is essential I have the tools and resources to differentiate instruction to meet their needs.

My Project

The new classroom library books will provide my students with engaging texts that will motivate them as readers. They will be enabled to conduct research projects, get lost in a favorite story, and become lifelong lovers of reading. The media cart will secure our technology in one spot. Wires will be safely tucked away and students can easily move around the classroom safely. With the iPod Boombox, students can listen to books read aloud to them, enjoy music in our classroom, and will support different styles of learning.

Please help me make a difference.

I am so passionate about my students, which is why I will do whatever it takes to be sure they are getting the best educational experience. They are our future, and they deserve it!
