My Students

My students are always excited when they enter the classroom, especially on lab days. They enjoy hands-on activities, working in small groups and being able to explore with their peers. My goal is to provide my students with an engaging, fun and safe learning environment. My school is located in a low social economic neighborhood where 95% of the students are on free or reduced-price lunch. Most of my students are faced with many challenges in the classroom and at home.

My Project

Hoping to start this new school year with a well stocked supply of classroom essentials like tissue, hand sanitizer, and disinfecting wipes to help stop the spread of germs. Last year the flu season went through our school like a wild fire and many students were absent. I'm just trying to get a head of cold season this year and pre-stock these supplies.

Classroom essentials like tissue, hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes will help my students to stop the spreading of germs and allow them to spread their kindness and creativity.

My students love to sweep up our classroom after we make a gigantic mess during STEAM time. Having a few sets of our own brooms and dust pans will allow more students to take ownership and stop the search of finding them from other teachers. This will be my first year in a portable and everyone is recommending fans to help circulate the air. These fans look perfect for our new space because they are small enough to not take up too much space and still keep the air flowing.
