My Students

My students I have in class have so much to offer. In our small classroom community, the students help each other learn and grow every single day through being helpful towards one another, being brave, trying their best, and setting goals for themselves and others. I remind my kiddos every single day that they can do great things and they truly believe that themselves as well.

I have a classroom of thinkers, builders, artists, authors, and scientists just waiting show show the world what they can do.

My Project

My classroom is made of a very diverse group of students! We are all about learning how we learn best in my classroom. With the addition of the new table, my students who feel like they learn better while sitting on the floor will be able to feel more comfortable in their environment! Seeing as we are so diverse, we need some more books for our learners with language supports! With the addition of a Spanish library, every student in my room will have more opportunities to learn their fullest potential!

All of the students in my room deserve the same opportunities as everyone else and with these additions to the classroom, we can give them the tools they need to succeed!
