My Students

My students are fun, kind and loving. I love teaching them because they soak up every drop of the teaching I pour out! I have students from over five countries in my classroom, and that makes our learning very diverse, fun and well-rounded!

I have students from over 5 different countries and we love hearing stories about where they are from and how they came to live in America!

I service students in a fully inclusive classroom, which means every student has a chance to be successful no matter what their learning disability may be. Excellence is our classroom goal. Each day after our pledge we recite our classroom motto, "Our mission is to be the best students in the world! We will exhibit excellence in the classroom, we will pay attention, listen to our teacher and persist in reaching our goals individually and collectively. Excellence is our mission!" My students are determined to do and be their best. They exhibit excellent behavior and are kind to one another in the classroom and on the playground. My school is full of motivated students who want to learn and be loved. I am doing the best I can to teach with love.

My Project

A field trip to the Port Discovery Science Center will allow my students the opportunity to see, touch, and interact with numerous scientific tools that they have only read about in textbooks! They will have a greater understanding of cells, the water cycle, ecosystems, plants, and how humans impact the environment!

Your donation to this field trip project will make a difference in the lives of my students because It will engage, excite, and involve them in their learning!

Some students may visit the Port Discovery Science Center every year, while others are not exposed at all. This program gives us a chance to level the playing field for all students and create future scientists!
