My Students

I always like to tell my students that in our classroom they are part of a family. We all bring different things to the table. Some of us are more quiet, where others are loud and outgoing. Some students love sports and learning history and war, where others love math, or science, or reading science fiction novels. All of our interests are different, but we still find common ground and have similarities. We are all able to contribute to make our classroom the best learning environment it can be!

My Project

We use pencils every single day in all of our subjects! As we start to come to the end of our school year, we are starting to get to the end of our pencil supply. I would love to be able to always have back up pre-sharpened back up pencils for the students to be able to use!

Pre-sharpened pencils will help to keep down the distractions during our learning time!

Students are constantly getting up to sharpen the little amount of pencils that we still have in our classroom. These pre-sharpened pencils will help students to stay engaged, and will help with all of the subject areas being taught!
