My Students

I teach in a Title One school where one hundred percent of our students receive free breakfast, lunch and after-school snack. We promote a positive school and learning environment through PBIS, and our school community challenges students to think and perform at high levels and exhibit positive character values.

My students are all so eager to learn and willing to work hard!

I teach reading and math to fourth, fifth and sixth grade students. I love helping students succeed and it's rewarding to know I'm helping children become fluent readers and more confident with their math skills.

My Project

Over the past year, my classroom has acquired three new whiteboard tables. During a normal school day, up to twenty-five students might sit at each of these tables in my room. With that many students using dry erase markers, the pens don't last very long before they dry out. I've also found that the erasers become dirty and must be replaced.

I'm requesting a supply of pens and erasers for students to use on my new whiteboard tables, as well as some Expo cleaning wipes because I clean the tables daily.

The new stools we've been acquiring over the past year, have been replacing our old student chairs. I still have a few old chairs at the computer station, so I'm requesting one last set of stools to replace them.
