My Students

We are a creative classroom family of 34 amazing scholars who learn in a variety of ways.

My students are have a growth mindset and enjoy challenges; they are the best students in the world.

With our growth mindset, we can do anything! We value educational experiences, projects, and activities and appreciate every new supply and tool. My students enjoy projects and have a thirst for knowledge. My students rock, and seeing their academic goals and dreams come to life is wonderful. They inspire me every day.

My Project

My students are amazing, and everyday they are in the classroom they learn and experience subjects in fun ways that help prepare for the future, but when they get sick they miss class.

When students stay healthy they stay happy and can fully experience lessons in the classroom.

When we are able to clean our classrooms and provide hand sanitizer, facial tissue, and hand wipes, students are able to slow the spreading of germs. In class we learn about healthy habits and the important of hygiene. Having supplies available help them follow hygiene goals. Students love coming to class, and we do amazing projects, but when they become sick they fall behind and spread germs to others.

Having theses supplies available to help them stay clean and away from sickness means more students in the seats and more learning in the classroom.
