My Students

In a city known for its challenges, my primary goal is to provide my students with a safe and rigorous environment where they can take the many skills taught in the classroom to a successful future ahead. I teach a group of 34 fourth grade students with a combination of various special needs students mainstreamed within. My students are a very energetic, inquisitive, and highly motivated group. They absolutely love to learn new information in a tactile and hands-on way.

One thing that sets my group of students apart is their motivation and drive to make this world a better place.

They strive for change and to make a positive impact on society. At such a young age, they are already able to describe how their future actions will affect those around them. With such a positive outlook on their future, it is my duty to provide my students with enriching activities that will make them productive future scholars in society.

Through the help of DonorsChoose.org, I hope to be able to provide more learning opportunities for my students through the use of materials that are not easily accessible in public education.

My Project

My students need a Claw Machine and small prize box items such as treats in order to help motivate their engagement throughout the school day! These items will not only motivate my students but will excite them about the learning process!

My goal is to award students with small treats during instruction in order to promote positivity, hard work ethic, and scholarly behavior!

What a better way to do this than with a Claw Machine??? I can just imagine the students faces! These items will also make my students feel a part of the classroom and excited to learn about new topics!

When students feel appreciated, a small token such as a treat can provide a student with an extra spark and motivation required to become more successful! These items may seem small, but they are huge motivators in the classroom!
