My Students

My students are active, engaged, amazing 6, 7 and 8 year old children! We spend first and second grade together! They love to work on the floor and in alternate seating locations. My kids love to read and be read to! They love hands on STEM and STEAM activities. They love to build and put things together. They love to read and write about their creations as well. They love to sit in special chairs, work on clipboards and move around the room throughout our day. They love to have fun while learning and are highly motivated and can be found smiling all day! My students are amazing children with tremendous potential to be future leaders in our communities!

My Project

We are in need of the Adjustable Book Cases and Ottoman Storage Cubes for our new STEM/STEAM Center donations. Having a place to put our materials will enable us to use them more frequently. I love teaching my students organization and responsibility with their learning materials.

It is extremely important for my students to be able to find materials quickly and not waste any time getting right to work so we can stay engaged in learning throughout our day!

These shelves and ottoman would definitely enhance our learning time and help us in our classroom daily, teaching us to be organized, responsible and respectful with all of our belongings.
