My Students

My students are awesome!! They are united by many things, but one of the biggest is their love for learning! My students are dreamers, creators, writers, scientists, innovators, leaders, bridge-builders, and team players from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, experiences. We love to read, write and complete math challenges! We also enjoy technology, art and PE!

As a class, we picked four pillars to guide us during the year: #Together, #BeUnique, #NoExcuses, #KeepLaughing.

This is us!

Half of our students come from low income households and many are helping to care for younger siblings. Yet, school is always a priority and I'm proud to be their teacher!

My Project

We're passing the half-way point of the current school year and my students are in need of refreshing some basic school supplies. We need white and color copy paper for our classwork and projects. We also need dry erase markers, staplers, pencils and a classroom pencil sharpener.

My 5th graders work really hard and they need some basic school supplies to finish up the school year.

With these school supplies, my incredible students will be able to use the dry erase markers on their whiteboards for daily practice, use the pencils and sharpener for writing and drawing, and the staplers to organize their work! Thank you!
