My Students

My 28 students here in Queens, NY are creative, ambitious learners who love coming to school. The students eagerly accept challenges and love active hands-on projects.

We are working on using our growth mindsets this year to embrace difficult tasks and take risks as learners!

The students in my first grade class learn differently from one another; yet they work collaboratively to problem-solve and engage in their own learning.

Multiple learning options need to be available in order to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are!

My Project

Hi Everyone!

Thank you so much for all of your support this year!

The storage bins I asked for will be used every day to store student backpacks. Without them, our students place their backpacks on the floor of the cubby, and because our cubby doors do not latch when they close, the students' backpacks slide out all day long!

The easel would be an amazing addition to our classroom. The one we are currently using is broken and has to be held up using alternate methods. The whiteboard on the easel has been stained by years past. I currently use a clothes hanger to hold up the anchor charts we complete as a class! Although the current easel has forced us to get creative, it would be lovely to have an easy-to-use easel during every day math, ELA and social studies instruction!

The ink requested for our classroom printer will give us the opportunity to print student work, student rewards (coloring pages, puzzles, mazes, etc.), and instructional materials for each of the subjects taught here in 1-2. You may notice this ink is different than the ink past requested - sadly, the printer that was donated last time worked all the way until last month. At that point, it was past the 45-day return/exchange and because we were in desperate need of a printer, I purchased a new one myself.

This project is asking a lot! Any donation would be truly appreciated. I thank you for all of your support!
