My Students

My firsties are hard-working, kind, and oh, so spirited! They love to learn in a hands-on environment that promotes movement around our room. They have so much potential to be world changers! I teach 17 students of diverse backgrounds and languages, which includes several with special needs. Our classroom community is one of family and love first, and my students truly work together to take care of one another. I am proud of them each and everyday! First grade is the best!

My Project

The majority of my students come from backgrounds that don’t allow them to provide school supplies. As a new teacher to the district, my classroom was bare in August. I desperately want to provide the tools needed for my students to use their creativity across the curriculum and store my class library in a way that allows them to benefit from using it. With personal book boxes, they can ‘check out’ books on their level to buddy read and enjoy. All of these items will go so far in addressing the need for simple supplies all students use, but mine rarely have. Thank you!
