My Students

I teach at a Title I school where many of the students are face challenges and struggles both in and out of the classroom. Some of them aren't given a chance, some of them aren't being challenged enough, and some are just falling through the cracks. Several of them don't have their basic needs met.

I love my school because it is filled with challenges that push me to be the best teacher I can be.

Seeing all of my beautiful smart students and getting their warm hugs and seeing their toothless smiles throughout the day, makes it all worth it.

My Project

A color printer will provide my kids with fun and engaging center materials. Scholastic magazines have been shown to be effective with attracting students and helping them increase their fluency all while learning new things.

Sports equipment will help the students work on team work and in general be a positive reinforcement outside.

Chart paper and markers will provide fun and engaging visuals for students in the classroom that will be left up on the walls for the students to refer back to throughout the year. I love making new centers for my students and key rings help SO much with keeping materials together!
