My Students

My second graders are wonderful students who come to school each and every day eager to learn. My students come from all over the world. Our different cultures and diversities make our classroom a wonderful place of learning. Some of my students have only been in the United States for a few years. The strength these children show in adapting to a new country, new school and new environment never ceases to amaze me! I want to give my students every opportunity possible to ensure their success.

I truly believe that all children deserve all that is necessary to enhance their learning but sometimes it is financially difficult to provide them with all that they need.

Your support will guarantee 25 bright smiles each day. My class and I are extremely grateful. We appreciate your help! Thanks!

My Project

Making my lessons creative and fun is essential in my classroom. I have always wanted to set up a "classroom store" to teach my children the value of money.

Help me give my children a mobile storage island and trays that will allow us to have a "classroom store" that will teach them about money, needs and wants!

Money is a topic that is not touched upon much in the second grade. By having this unit, the children can set up a classroom store and really learn about money using everyday life scenarios. The different compartments will help us store items the children can buy. Not only does this help us with learning about money and the value of money, it will also teach my children the differences between needs and wants!
