My Students

My amazing third grade students are eager to learn and ready to become a little more independent as they blossom. I am privilege to be the one to teach them new skills and prepare them for 4th grade.

My students come to me from a low income area and many times I become their one caring adult they have at school.

Together we create a space for all of my students to feel safe, cared for, and most importantly, to be successful.

My Project

My students come to class everyday ready to learn and practice new skills. My students are working on mastering multiplication, division, fractions, cause and effect, making inferences, and understanding point of view. I provide a classroom environment that they feel safe to make mistakes in order to learn from them.

Having rugs in my room will provide a comfortable space for my students to spread out or have space to collaborate.

I have found that my students prefer to move around the room to do their work compared to staying in their seats. Having 2 different texture rugs in my class will provide various sensory work spaces for my students to thrive. I want to be able to provide my students a space they want to challenge themselves and master important skills needed to be prepared for 4th grade.
