My Students

As a teacher in a Title I school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide a bridge in the learning at school and the learning at home.

My students are creative, kind, and very enthusiastic about learning.

They love to have fun while they learn and they learn best with activities that spark their interest. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their individual needs and growth. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Classroom transformations are fun, magical, and so engaging for all students. I cannot wait to create a space adventure right in our classroom!

I am requesting stars, planets, moons, spaceships and so much more to transform our classroom into an unforgettable day in space.

We need space books, decor, and hands on activities to make our space unit come to life.

My students need experiences to help make real life connections and I think transforming our classroom is a great way to help students connect their learning to real life experiences.

We will incorporate kindergarten standards into our fun, students won't even know they are learning! Our day will consist of researching stars and planets all while learning new vocabulary and participating in hands-on activities.
