My Students

My 630 students are in grades K-5. I teach 28 different classes each week. My school is a diverse mix of students from the Charlotte, NC community. We have many different nationalities represented and with all levels of ability. The one thing they all have in common is the importance of a quality education. In fact, their futures depend on it.

Despite being economically challenged, these kids are true go-getters and lovers of learning.

They embrace everything I am teaching them. They love school, everything from reading to math to art to anything technology-based. School is a safe haven for many of my students.

My Project

Our Media Center has really become a fun place for the students. From finding new books to read then being able to create with hands-on materials once we have finished our lesson for the day. I am trying to provide a variety of different resources to keep things fresh.

My students have asked specifically for new books about Junie B Jones, Voltron, and Katie Woo so I have requested those titles.

We have been fortunate to get materials for a LEGO wall and table and now we want to add cars so we need wheels and axels. Wikki Sticks are something new for us to build with. We need some Kleenex badly as roughly 140 students have classes each day in the library.
