My Students

I have a wonderful class. My students are very diverse and have various educational needs. They love to learn in our comfortable and flexible classroom environment.

My classroom is a truly inclusive classroom in which students with and without disabilities learn together.

I have the support of a paraprofessional and a special education teacher for part of the day. My students have an enormous range of academic abilities. Several of my special needs students need intensive support, while some of my general education students perform way above the expected first-grade level. I love this about my classroom. Each one of my students is unique in their own special way.

I also have students from various races and cultures. Some are English Language Learners. These students thrive in a comfortable learning environment. I have students who have ADHD and behavior modification plans as well as students who are independent learners and self-motivated​. It truly is a diverse group of happy, loving, and kind students!

My Project

I am asking for these art supplies to help replace the ones that were lost, due to smoke damage, in a fire at our school last year.

These new supplies will help my first graders develop their creativity while exploring various types of media.

My students will be able to experiment with oil pastels and watercolor paints to create projects, pictures and story illustrations. The boys and girls will be able to accent their art with glitter and pom poms. My class will be able to explore culturally based art projects using multicultural paper, as well as, brightly colored construction paper.
