My Students

My students are high school biology students at a public high school in Charlotte, North Carolina. They are spontaneous, inspiring, hilarious, creative, and - above all - individuals with their own unique personalities and stories.

We work together to create a collaborative atmosphere in the classroom for everyone's success, and I'm so proud of my students for the support they show each other every day.

My Project

This wishlist contains various things that are necessary for a functioning classroom but are often left off of district/local supply options. These are the most common things I pay for out of my own pocket!

It includes duct tape, beads, tissues, snacks, water, command strips, and binders/dividers for students to use.

I didn't realize until I became a teacher how often I'd be using duct tape in the room! I've gone through several rolls and can always use more.

Description of uses:

The tape is used to hang student work, group-made posters, and label desks. The beads are used for students to build DNA models with color-coded nitrogen bases. The snacks are for me to give to students who are struggling and distracted because they're hungry. Tissues are for students to blow their noses. Binders and dividers are given to students who don't have them at the beginning of the semester.
