My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

A portion of my students come to me with speech and learning delays, receive free and reduced meal services, and a love and ambition for learning.

For many, this is their first school experience and I want to make it the best for them. We come from a community of low-income families which makes home-school connections difficult.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

My students must keep up with the latest advancements in education to spark an interest in reading. Education is changing every single day, and so are the interest of my students. My school has leveled reading books that are outdated so I would like to have books will hold their interests and keep them reading in my classroom.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

Flexible seating allows children to learn in comfortable setting.

Our school is trying to implement a strong STEM program within our core curriculum and easy science centers will promote hands-on learning!
