My Students

I am blessed to teach third grade at a wonderful Title I school in northeast North Carolina. Our students are loving, hard working, easily motivated, and care about each other and their success! They thrive on competitions and reaching goals set for them throughout the school year.

Our students get excited, work harder, and stay more engaged in their academics when they are able to collaborate and work together to accomplish a task and compete in a challenge.

We are a diverse school consisting of students and families from various backgrounds and cultures as well as Coast Guard families. They are each unique and have a special way of winning our hearts with their kindness and thoughtfulness. We have truly become a family!

My Project

Our students love to watch movies, plays, and to "act out" their learning throughout various activities during our school day. We would like to work with our art and music teachers to perform an environmental play, Save The Lofty Trees by Leslie Mills, so our students can share with their families and our community what they will have learned in Science regarding conservation and our environment.

This project is requesting various animal, insect, flower, earth, woodcutter and factory worker costumes so students will be able to dress their part in our production of Save the Lofty Trees.

The mini stress earth balls will be randomly distributed to the audience during a question and answer session where the audience will be able to ask play participants pre-assigned specific questions regarding their learning of the concepts of animal welfare, conservation and our environment. Thank you so much for considering and supporting this fun project that will make a lasting impact on our third graders!
