My Students

I have a fantastic group of students for my second year teaching second grade. I enjoy being their teacher! Our school is in a small, rural town in West Central, Ohio. In my classroom, there are 12 boys and 7 girls who always push me to reflect and to create a learning environment that balances enjoyment, creativity, and hard work.

These 19 students appreciate the learning environment we have and make a conscious effort to care for our classroom and its furnishings.

Whether it's picking up trash or returning used items to their place in a container or on a shelf, we are intentional about having an orderly space for learning. My students know that disorganized surroundings can negatively impact their ability to learn. With your help, we will have an organized classroom to prepare for the rigors of third grade.

My Project

The perfect learning environment begins with a warm, inviting atmosphere. Creating such a space means that everything has its place. Storage sacks and binders are the simplest means of organizing any classroom. Students can readily access classroom supplies and return items to their respective positions after use.

By providing chair pockets, binders, and page protectors for my students, you are helping them develop essential organizational skills.

The classroom is not only about students learning academics. It also includes teaching life skills that prepare them to serve in any vocation.

Additionally, having an organized learning environment will eliminate wait times that rob my students and me of valuable contact time. My goal is for students to efficiently arrange their classroom supplies so they can quickly find what they need and get to work.
