My Students

Benjamin Franklin once said, "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." Students need to be involved in their learning so that they can take ownership of what they are doing. Students need to get their hands "dirty" by using them to research, create, and make learning meaningful. I teach about 18 eager, energetic third-grade students in my classroom this year. We are a Title I school which means 100% of our students participate in the free lunch program. All of our students are eager to learn and need experiences that they do not get at home. Many of our children come from single-parent homes.

Our school is in close proximity to a major military base; we serve many students who come from active and retired military families.

I also help run the Entreneural Club at our school. Students are tasked with planning, designing, and creating items to sell at school functions. Our students have made many items such as t-shirts, personalized bears, stickers, and decals. Our club uses the "profits" to help with school beautification projects. They are so proud to take ownership of their club growth!

My Project

We have recently been able to get many class sets of books that go along with our new curriculum. To help us keep these books organized and safe, we are in need of a new bookcase. We also need two sets of drawers, one small and one large, to keep our school supplies, such as pencils, organized and accessible to students.

During math and literacy whole group, my students are often hard at work at the teacher table.

We are in need of a dry erase board to use at our teacher table. Students will be able to show their work and explain how they got their answers.
