My Students

My gifted students are so very creative, unique, and full of potential. My students enjoy a wide variety of activities and use different grouping strategies based on the task. My students love to work together, and this collaboration is a valuable skill for classroom projects and real-world activities.

I love when my students walk into my classroom bursting with ideas, things they have pondered, and questions for me.

My students really enjoy discussions, and quite often, those discussions are deep! My students also love to create, whether the creating is with code, visual arts, performing arts, digital products, or any other way they can think of to show what they have learned.

My Project

Even in the best, well-stocked, perfectly organized classrooms, items need updating and replacing. My students need more headphones for use with our Chromebooks. We use our Chromebooks almost daily, and headphones are a crucial accessory for completing assignments and creating digital products. When my students are creating physical products, they often like to use colored pencils. I have limited their use of colored pencils because we don't have a way to sharpen the pencils. Several students have asked if I could get a colored pencil sharpener so that they can use the pencils when creating visual representations of their learning.

It's almost mind-boggling how much headphones and a pencil sharpener will mean to my students.

My entire school district receives free lunch, and my students are truly grateful for anything they are given.

I'm requesting headphones, a colored pencil sharpener, and a curriculum guide so that my students may learn more, understand more, create more, and grow more!
