My Students

My students are an amazing group of young adults! The diverse personalities make our class unique and interesting. We are constantly learning from each other and building strong relationships daily.

My students strive to do their best at everything, every minute of every day.

They are fun, kind, caring, creative, and extremely talented. Each and every student in our room is important, special and loved. We work together to bring out the best in ourselves and others in our room.

My Project

My reading and writing classes would like more storage for our literacy supplies. Storage for our our writing notebooks, silent reading books and reading and writing folders is needed for organization in our classroom. These plastic bins will be used by three separate grade levels to hold our class work.

Organizing our supplies helps to keep us on task, ready to learn each day.

Having more storage in our room will allow students to easily find their notebooks and reading books, and will save time with handing out materials during lessons. These bins will help students to organize and be ready for lessons, independent time and group work.
