My Students

For my first year of teaching I am blessed to have a diverse group of fourth grade students. In our class, there is a wide range of personalities, backgrounds, stories, friendships, and so much more.

My fourth graders think outside of the box and love being challenged.

In our classroom we support a positive attitude, taking ownership of our learning and actions, and challenging the status quo!

My Project

Basic school supplies such as pencils, paper, and glue sticks are a necessity in a classroom. Students use these resources in a multitude of ways. Whether it be completing an independent practice handout or creating a project collaboratively with their peers, these supplies will be utilized and appreciated.

Some of the items I have requested include: laminating sheets, highlighters, pencils, glue sticks, dry erase markers and paper.

My school is a Title I school and many of my students are not able to bring common school supplies and rely on their teachers and the school to support them for their educational needs.

As a first year teacher, it can become challenging to fund my students' needs. By donating to this project you will help my students and I continue learning into the new year!
