My Students

"Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion." —Muhammad Ali. This is the motto in our classroom and my students work hard every day to ensure that they are prepared to be successful citizens in this 21st-century world.

My students are incredibly hard workers.

They don't all come from the best circumstances, but once they walk through the doors of our school, they know they are safe and taken care of. Eighty-five percent of our students get free or reduced-price lunch. We are a Title I funded school that provides all students with a free breakfast each morning. Our school has wonderful partnerships with the community in order to provide our inner-city students with all the opportunities they need to become successful citizens. My students love to learn. They love experiencing new things and come to school each day excited to learn with their classmates and teachers.

My Project

There are so many materials that we use on a daily basis in an elementary classroom. Some things take time to use up, others go in a hurry! Card stock, chart paper, and pens are some of the items that we use to catch a student's eye and keep them engaged in our daily lessons. A child doesn't want to write a story? Let them pick your coolest pen, and they've got three pages complete in no time! Can't remember the order of operations? Check out our awesome anchor chart with writing big enough to see from across the room! These materials will make a massive difference in our day to day lives!
