My Students

As a second year ELA teacher, it's my goal to provide my students with the necessary materials to enhance their academic abilities and facilitate their comprehension. I teach three ELA classes a day to just under 60 students. I have a diverse group of students from military families that need a welcoming and supportive classroom environment. My students are faced with many challenging circumstances that pertain to military life including family separation, transitions, and other life changing events, which ultimately have an impact on students' academic performance.

My students love learning and flourish when given the opportunity to try new things.

I believe in providing them with a safe place to grow and giving them all the necessary resources to accomplish this!

My Project

Nothing makes the holidays more fun than an end of the semester paint party! I love spending the last days before break giving my students the opportunity to be creative.

It’s the one time of the year we get to step away from the heavy academic expectations and spend quality time together enjoying our classroom family!

What better way to collaborate, than to paint and laugh together. In order to create one of a kind paintings, we need the supplies to bring them to life. This includes Chromacryl Acrylic Essentials - Set of 12 colors, canvas panels, paint brushes, and paint cups. We are so excited to get this project started and can't wait to share our art pieces with you all.
