My Students

I have a wonderful opportunity to work with students in grades K-6 specifically on reading skills. I love working with a variety of ages and being able to see their minds and ability grow and develop. I want them to know that through their education, any dream they have can come true.

My students amaze me daily in what they are capable of doing when they are provided opportunities and interventions in my classroom.

They have shown much development of their character, motivation to do their best, and pride in themselves which will be critical to them becoming successful as they grow up.

My Project

My students come from a rural, low-income area and access to custom created resources is limited. By having a Cricut Maker cutting system available in the school, students and teachers will have the ability to utilize the system to make their projects more personal while learning how to use the vinyl cutting machine and software program.

Students who are able to take ownership of their work are more likely to put their best and being able to custom create their projects with the use of the Cricut Maker will help increase motivation and individuality.

Many students do not have access to software and tools as the Cricut Maker in their homes for custom creating work.

The Cricut Maker system will also allow for custom made manipulatives for a variety of skills. System use will be prolonged by having a proper storage bag and the purchase of additional mats will also allow for extended use.
