My Students

I teach fifth grade at a K-8 elementary school in the Sierra Nevada foothills. My students are growing up together in a small, tight-knit community school. I have diverse learning needs throughout my classroom but all of my students are eager, enthusiastic and innovative despite our low socioeconomic and Title I status. They are enjoying collaborative, hands-on projects and working together to accomplish a goal.

This is my second year teaching fifth grade.

I'm excited to have students participate in their growth and education throughout the year.

My Project

As our school year comes to an end, I always inventory our classroom supplies. It's June, and easy to see what supplies that are in need of a replacement for our 2019-2020 school year.

My students need file folders, watercolor paper, mechanical pencils, adhesives, and highly engaging literature.

My new fifth graders will use these supplies hard throughout the year. We use the file folders for a hanging portfolio. They add their best work throughout the year and have a beautiful portfolio to show their parents at the classroom open house.

Other supplies, like watercolor paper, mechanical pencils and adhesives, will be used for numerous art projects. The books being requested, like Dork Diaries and Just Jaime, are replacing lost books from our classroom library. They were so well-loved but didn't make it back to the shelves at the end of the school year. The sweet treats will be used for test preparation and positive incentives.
