My Students

It’s difficult to describe my class in two paragraphs. So many characters, so many personalities, so many wonderful little minds learning more and more each day, striving to read, write, and learn their numbers.

Although a few of these students face some hardships at home, they come to school eager to learn.

With young fives being the start of their schooling experience, I strive to make it a positive and nurturing one. As my students will tell you, I am educating our future doctors, police officers, coffee shop owners, presidents of the United States, and teachers. My classroom is full of potential and hope.

My Project

Our classroom goes through quite a bit of construction paper and paint throughout the school year. Our supply is running low! Please, support our classroom to ensure our supply doesn't go dry.

We are in need of construction paper and paint for various projects and learning activities.

Our paint is utilized throughout the entire school year, however it is most when we do our color unit. Within our color unit we paint and experiment with mixing colors. Construction paper is another item that we frequently use throughout the year whether it be for our class books, holiday projects, gingerbread men (which we mail out in a gingerbread exchange with 30 different schools across the United States), snowmen projects, shape activities, and so much more! We would love to share some photos of these projects and activities that we use our construction paper and paint to create when our project is funded!
