My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. They are geared towards small growth and look for success in any form. Truly, they are my inspiration!

My students face challenges everyday and still conquer!

Our Class Motto: Work Hard, Play Hard!

My Project

By helping my classroom get mailboxes, my students will have an opportunity to practice accountability and a place to gather materials inside of the classroom. For instance, we have a huge problem with space in the classroom. Since the beginning of the year, students and I have to leave the last 2 minutes of class to pass out classwork, homework, and graded work. Chaos! This can really help us develop as people and create a calm synergy in the classroom. Another, MAJOR skill that these mailboxes will help us develop is writing. My students are avid writers and we need a place to store them.
