My Students

I currently teach at a small school in central North Dakota. I have 15 first graders in my classroom, and they love coming to school most days! They are a great group of kids!

Even though we are a small school, I try my best to provide our students the best education possible.

It is my goal to see that each and every student that enters my classroom leaves at the end of the year having learned all they can--both academically and socially.

My Project

Grading papers is a necessary evil as a teacher, but when I have fun colored pens and markers to do the job, it makes it just a little more fun. I have tried a few different brands and styles, but these ones are my favorites. Some are better for all that teacher paperwork, and some just make giving stars on papers just way more fun.

The students love when I use fun colored pens and markers to grade their papers, but after a few years, my stash is running low.

They like it even more when I let them pick what color marker to use! However, I'm down to only a few bright colors and brown and black markers, and that's not quite as fun for anyone! Please help bring a little brightness back to our classroom!
