My Students

My students live in Ohio and our school is one of the larger schools in our county. Most of my students come from low-income, high needs homes. They face challenges outside of the academic realm. Our school receives a grant in which 100% of the students are offered a free breakfast and lunch.

My goal is to engage every student, each and every day.

To do this, I try to create variety in my lessons by appealing to their learning styles and interests. My classroom is an inclusion classroom, and there is a wide range of learning levels.

I also coach track and cross country. I believe sports provide an opportunity to learn life skills such as time management, leadership, teamwork, and developing a success mindset.

My Project

Our students need new pencil sharpeners for our classroom. We are requesting two pencil sharpeners. One will be electric and the other manual to use for colored pencils. Our current sharpener isn't working and has made some of our pencils more dull. Having two pencil sharpeners will save time when students need to sharpen their pencils.

You can never have enough pencils!

We would be forever grateful for a few extra pencils to have on hand for when students forget theirs.

Lastly, we are requesting some colored paper for projects. Students love the neon colors to spice up their work.
