My Students

“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.” ― Malala Yousafzai

My students are inquisitive, creative, and always eager to learn.

We use a variety of hands-on, engaging activities to make all lessons fun and encourage thinking outside the box. I don’t have a perfect classroom, but my students strive to be the best daily; they help each other to achieve, aspire, and to be more. My students are always excited to learn new things and every one of them works together as a team. Some of their families are still recovering from Hurricane Harvey which hit our community hard.

There are lots of ways we use technology in the real world; as a teacher, I want to bring it to my group of amazing students!

My Project

"A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere" ~ Joyce Meyer

Every dream, scribbles, and writing start with a pencil.

The pencils, glue, paper and other supplies will be used in the classroom. Classroom supplies are used everyday by the students and with our community just recovering from Hurricane Harvey, the students are glad to come to school without worrying about supplies. The pencil sharpener will help us sharpen our pencils efficiently and effectively without wasting instructional time.

My students are eager learners, please help give them the tools needed to dream and achieve their dream.

Ms. Roberts
Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
