My Students

My students are the future leaders of our community and are eager to make their place in our world. They are naturally inquisitive. With each passing day, my students are more and more excited to learn something new. They are hard-working and intelligent and deserve to have the very best learning opportunities and materials. They are thinkers, problem solvers, inventors, and the creative minds behind so many unique projects and ideas that require up-to-date resources and technology.

My students come from many different backgrounds and experiences.

Being in a Title I high needs school has never stopped my students from walking in the classroom door with a willingness to learn. The diverse population of students offers a space to teach and learn about acceptance and understanding.

My Project

In a classroom full of little ones, storage makes all the difference between a productive day and a chaotic day. My students need bags and containers of all sizes to store and organize our materials.

You can imagine the amount of materials that one classroom can hold, and sometimes it can be overwhelming for the students.

As teachers we try our best to organize it for the students but we sometimes lack the proper equipment to do so to the best of our ability. We recently organized our STEM materials with similar containers and my students have requested that I implement the same organization style throughout the entire classroom. This is truly a project that was spearheaded by my students, and I am proud to say that they are pushing to make our classroom a better place to learn and grow!
