My Students

My students come from various backgrounds, cultures, and socioeconomic statuses. Although many different backgrounds are represented in our school community, there is an unwavering amount of support, love, and acceptance from staff, parents, and students.

They are energetic, collaborative, problem-solvers who enjoy learning from one another.

They are engaged learners who are challenged daily to grow and expand their thinking academically and social-emotionally.

My young learners deserve the absolute best educational experience throughout our time together to continue their love of learning!

My Project

Please help me give each one of my students a space to call their own. We have tables in our classroom so these seat sacks would help save space, organize their materials, and keep all of their belongings safe.

Apart from the first grade is learning to be responsible and independent with your materials.

With these seat sacks, each child will have a chance to learn individual responsibility, organizational skills, and how to manage their personal belongings. These skills will long help them as they continue in their education and in life.

My students already have an understanding of responsibility so please help me continue to promote their independence!
