My Students

My students are from very low socioeconomic backgrounds and school is a safe, fun place for them to come. Many of them also come from different cultural backgrounds and many of them are English Language Learners.

My students love to learn and come to school every day excited about what we will do each day.

They are very creative and love to think out loud about what we are learning. They love it when we are working together and are willing to work hard.

My Project

Crayons and markers My students will use these supplies in to illustrate stories they write, decorate special projects, and complete daily assignments. We also use We these items to make holiday crafts to display in the hallway could also use a crayon sharpener to make our crayons last a little longer

Please allow me to make learning engaging for my students with the use of color.

Providing my students with the supplies they need will empower them to do their very best.

Students will be able to use new crayons to create projects at school and old crayons can be sent home for the students to use at home to continue their learning.
