My Students

I am so excited there is a program like this to help out teachers! I have not met my students for the new year, but I am SO excited to meet them. We are going to have an exciting year all thanks to people like you!

In my classroom I use positive atmosphere and continuous encouragement to help my students reach their full potential.

My job is to assist students into understanding the world of math. So let's make it as fun as possible! With your help I will be able to furnish my classroom and provide each student with an amazing environment they deserve!

My classroom has so much potential it just needs some love! Thanks for your support!

My Project

I am a new teacher, so all these items would greatly help my classroom functionality and appearance. These items will help me prepare my classroom for the new year! I am SO excited to start this year off! Unlike veteran teachers I have NOTHING prior to this year so I am starting from scratch. I am gathering class materials a little at a time.

These kids deserve an amazing classroom with all the classroom essentials!

The bulletin board will be for student accomplishments, anything they are proud of I want them to show it! I have also selected various office supplies to help with my classroom's basic needs, such as: date stamp, shoe organizer, and hole puncher. The post-it notes will help my student brainstorm amazing ideas! My goal is to have this room completed before school starts, and I could use your help! I appreciate you all for reading my project!
