My Students

My students smile every morning and are happy to be in a safe and respectful environment to learn. I give 110% to my teaching, and I want every student to do the same as we learn together in so many exciting ways. I teach 20 poverty-stricken students who are excited to come to school every day to learn.

As a second grade teacher, I want my students to have the tools to become awesome lifelong learners that can apply their knowledge to everyday life.

My students prove every day that they are eager to explore new ideas through both our curriculum and the outside world. They also love to learn new concepts that are not only new math skills or books read. The students are excited to learn from STEM items that are hands-on materials that allow the students to actively learn in many ways.

My Project

My students are able to earn class money by doing their daily work, showing up for school, and going above and beyond in and out of our classroom.

Pens, pencils, erasers, and notepads are great items to teach the students the importance of earning and saving money.

These awesome items will stock my class store and give the students incentives to earn money for great items to buy.

I teach my students the importance of earning and saving money for the future. These items are usable in the classroom and also to take home and use with loved ones outside of school.
