My Students

My students are loving, kind, and special. They keep me laughing and teach me new things everyday! They are an incredible group that wants to learn. They enjoy engaging activities and work well together. Our classroom is our second home. My students treat everyone with kindness. They love to help each other and they love to learn!

Teaching through engaging experiences allows all different types of learners to succeed.

My students are unique individuals with huge hearts. Teaching them brings me happiness.

My Project

Adding engaging components in a classroom is imperative. I hope to inspire my students and create lasting memories. Having living organisms in our classroom will help students become eager to come to school. They will want to check on their butterflies and experience our new class plant.

Students need to love learning.

They will love learning with concrete materials.

Thank you for helping me to create a positive and fun classroom. Where students will learn about living organisms and the life cycle or both plants and animals. My students are going to be thrilled to begin! Thank you very much.
