My Students

I teach in a small school in the Texas Panhandle. I have a group of diverse students including low-income families, a vast ESL population, and students that are part of migrant families. Our community is mainly a rural one where workers come and go due to farming needs. My kids are high energy and lots of fun to teach.

I feel very fortunate to get to teach my group of amazing students.

They make my day worth getting up and working my hardest for them. At the end of the day, I just want what is best for my students!

My Project

I would love to have an easel for my classroom as I do not have one. We plan to use it multiple times a day to enhance our curriculum. I try to make everything interactive for my students and this will help in all areas. The kids can really get hands-on in a great way. It also allows us to do our writing on a larger scale. We can make words with magnetic letters, write stories with chart paper, and solve math problems with the dry erase board. It will also allow me to keep all my supplies for these activities in one place. This would be so beneficial to my teaching and students.
