My Students

My students are bright, creative, and eager to learn. Second grade is one of the most influential years in a students' educational journey, and I am so excited to see them through it.

What makes my school special is that all students, regardless of whether or not they have a disability, learn together.

This is also what makes my job difficult, due to the sheer level of differentiation of instruction.

Many students in my classroom have behavioral and emotional disabilities; they have experienced trauma that oftentimes inhibits their ability to learn in school. My job is to make sure these students have the tools they need to be successful.

My Project

I am looking to purchase high quality dry erase markers and pencils for my classroom. This will allow us to spend less time searching the classroom for materials that work, and more time learning!

I have been using Expo and Ticonderoga brands for many years, and have never been disappointed by the quality of their products.

I know that, if this project is funded, it will allow my students the opportunity to be given supplies that their peers at schools with better funding receive on a daily basis. They deserve these supplies as well.
