My Students

Second grade is my favorite grade to teach! We smile, laugh, talk, whisper, explore, think, solve problems, create, dance, jump, share, read, write, build things, and LEARN! My students always make my day brighter! They enter my classroom in the mornings excited and ready to learn, and with such loving hearts, you cannot help but love this sweet age.

DonorsChoose is AMAZING; my previous students and I are very grateful for those who have donated and the impact their donations have had on making our classroom even better!

My Project

My students need "At-Your-Seat Storage Sacks" to store their books and notebooks. Each day we are working with our composition notebooks and workbooks; however, we are in desperate need of extra storage.

Their desks have limited space for all of their books/notebooks, so having this funded project would be awesome!!

If students can simply turn around to get out the correct book or notebook, it will help save time and lead to fewer classroom disruptions. It will also teach students how to be organized. We will use these storage sacks to hold math, ELA, science, and social studies composition books as well as workbooks for reading and math.
