My Students

My classroom is a mix of students in every sense of the word. I have students who are special education, general education, English learners, and some have social-emotional disorders. All of my students are eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch. My students do not let these disadvantages get in their way. They are some of the kindest ten and eleven-year-old kids you would ever have the privilege of meeting.

They are enthusiastic learners who work hard and persevere!

They want to learn and succeed​ but need the tools to do so. They brighten my day by saying "I missed you!" after each vacation and by coming back to visit me the following year. And at the end of class saying "That was fun." I want to give them the best education I can by fostering their enthusiasm for learning while having fun!

My Project

The afternoon can be the hardest part for my 5th graders. They begin to lose energy and pencils! Please help replenish our classroom store with snacks, water, pencils, and whiteboard markers.

My students earn tickets for good behaviors, staying on task, being kind to others, and helpful in the classroom.

When our classroom store opens, students can turn in their tickets for school supplies and snacks. The biggest ticket items in the store are pencils, water, and snacks! Please help replenish our stock so my students have the energy, pencils, and whiteboard markers they need to make it through those final hours.
