My Students

My students are such a blessing! Each one of them have a different unique story.

When my students come to class they are eager to learn, and to be loved.

They work hard to be the best student they can be, and they work even harder to be the best person they can be. These sweet children ask to learn more each day. They like to help teach their peers and teach me. I learn something new from them everyday.

My students deserve the world and we would all be so appreciative to have your support in being able to get it for them. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

My Project

Adding these books to my classroom library will give my students more enjoyable and engaging opportunities for reading. They will also provide many laughs during read alouds. The seat sacks will provide convenient storage that helps manage organization and structure in the classroom during transitions. The draw and write journals will provide a wonderful space for my students to share their ideas and thoughts. They will be able to show their creativity and explore their artistic side, keeping it all in one place. This will be so wonderful to send home at the end of the year to show parents the wonderful work and growth of their children.
