My Students

My students are eager young learners who love to learn in a variety of ways. They come to school each day ready to learn and are excited to see what each day will bring.

My biggest challenge as a teacher today is making sure I have the supplies necessary in my classroom.

Budget cuts have impacted the classroom tremendously and made it very difficult to provide a classroom environment conducive to learning.

Technology is also something that is changing daily and making it even more difficult to deliver quality lessons that will engage and interest my students.

My Project

We all like to curl up with a good book. However, that's hard to do in the classroom. The desk and chairs are not really made to lounge while reading, yet we still expect our students to do so. Therefore, my students would love to have a big bean bag chair to stretch out on and read. Sometimes getting students to read is hard, but if they have a nice and comfortable place to do it, they are more likely to read and finish that book! Let's face it, none of us want to sit in a hard chair and read. I'm hoping I won't have to make my students either!
