My Students

I teach Math to two classes of 4th grade students in a low-income, high poverty elementary school. My students come to me with a challenging home life, different learning abilities, but are eager to learn!

They love coming to school and work hard to succeed.

They know their learning will be engaging, fun, and worthwhile. They are very hard-working students who are willing to try anything!

My fourth graders switch to another classroom for their English Language Arts instruction. Therefore, I see two classes of enthusiastic students!

My Project

Keeping supplies out of the desks is a challenge because I switch between two math classes. They always lose a pencil or marker when they need it the most. They need to keep their supplies separated, organized, and easily accessible.

Individual seat sacks will allow students to keep their workspace clear and free from distractions while they learn!

They will also help them find things quietly without disrupting their classmates and keep them attentive to their work! No more "Mrs. Filer, I can't find my pencil," because it is in their seat sack!

My goal is to help my students prepare for their future and helping them stay organized is a great tool to have in their toolbox!
