My Students

My 8th grade students are hard working students who are extremely capable of achieving high standards. We have worked hard as a community to build trust and hard work ethic for all students. In my Math classroom, it is important to be able to use multiple means to help everyone be successful.

Although our school has a high poverty rate, we are working hard as a school and classroom community to create endless opportunities for students to have the supplies and tools that they will need to be successful in and out of the classroom

My Project

Our students are some of the hardest workers out there. These materials will help us stay organized in the classroom while we are working on our classroom community work.

The hooks will allow us to hang up our bags so they are off of the floor.

The cleaning wipes will keep everyone healthy during the season, and help take pride in the classroom. The cardstock will help us with our growth mindset project that we complete every week throughout the year, and everyone needs pencils to complete their work.

Thank you for helping keep our classroom environment cleaned and organized.
