My Students

In my classroom of 18, we enter our classroom with curiosity and excitement for learning! My students are creative, inquisitive and eager to learn! We work hard with whole group, small group and hands on instruction.

Being at a Title I school, we have a variety of students coming from economically/socially disadvantaged households - These students have diverse backgrounds and face hardships everyday.

My goal as a teacher is to not only to foster their need for learning but also be a positive influence in their lives. I want to be someone they can count on and they know cares for them.

My Project

These items will help me provide an organized learning environment for my students, as well as help me teach them organizational skills. By creating an organized environment, I will be able to teach more efficiently. I will be showing them how I use organization to create structure in my classroom. Students will see and learn how being prepared and organized will help them throughout their academic career. This is also a skill they can use in their everyday life.

Simple tools, like the ones I am requesting, can help increase learning time and grades while decreasing frustration due to disorganization.

I plan on using binders, pencil pouch, dry erase sleeves, adhesive index card pockets to help my students keep organized in their desks and cubbies. I plan on using the file folders and metal file crate to organize students work and as a mailbox system to get their work back to them.

The clear totes will be used to organize work by subject. I plan to use the three tiered cart in the front on my classroom to store books we are reading as a class as well as daily and weekly materials need for our lessons. The label maker I plan to label our supply drawers as well as many other things to keep organized in our classroom.
