My Students

My students are very diverse. They are also diverse learners, and they come from diverse backgrounds. I have students with disabilities, students from other countries who are learning English, as well as advanced students. It is quite an interesting group of kids.

My students are awesome kids who come in every day and are eager to learn despite the challenges they may face.

It is very inspiring, and although it is very challenging, I am lucky to be their teacher.

My Project

Sharpies are like magic in my classroom. If I let my students use a Sharpie pen, they are excited to write and it is neat and organized. When I let them use Sharpie markers, the creativity flows and I am able to do a lot more diverse activities that encourage creativity. Sharpies really are magical in the classroom. The Sharpie pens, Sharpie markers and pencils in my project will give us endless possibilities.

This project will make a difference because it will get them excited about work!

The pens, markers and pencils can be used for every subject and it will greatly enhance their learning.
