My Students

I am a first year teacher this year. It has always been my dream to have my very own classroom. I have been in education for many years. I am excited to make a difference in my students’ lives.

My students are fourth, fifth, and sixth-grade students with emotional disturbance.

They work diligently to overcome the challenges of their disabilities and strive to be their best. I know they will challenge me, but I am excited to find ways to help them. I know teaching multiple grade levels to students, who are at, below, and above grade level will be demanding and rewarding at the same time.

Nearly all of my students are from low-income households and are transported to my school from all parts of the school district.

When people say "It takes a village...," I have learned that it truly takes a village in order to meet the needs of every student in my classroom. For this reason, I do my best to be creative to provide them what they need and make our classroom a positive.

My Project

My commitment is to give my students all the resources I can in order to have a successful day at school and have a positive learning experience.

I am committed to have a healthy classroom.

My goal is to promote nutrition and its effect on learning. Snacks such as granola bars and cookies will help students have something in their tummy while they learn and play. My students often come to school without having breakfast and then have a difficult time focusing on their learning. The snacks will make a difference in their day and give them more energy instead of learning and playing on an empty stomach.
