My Students

My students are an incredible group of first graders, who come from a diverse community, in an area with high poverty. Some of my students do not have resources or support from home to enhance their learning. As their teacher, I do my best to provide my students with the best learning environment. My students' ability levels range from one year below grade level to two years above grade level. With such a wide-range of ability levels, I must work extra hard to meet the needs of all of my students. With your help, I'm confident that I can enrich the lives of all of my first graders and encourage my students to become life-long learners!

My Project

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace for original educational resources. Through the years I have purchased various lesson materials, gotten inspiration for new projects, and learned from fellow teachers by being a member of Teachers Pay Teachers.

Education is always changing, so educators need to constantly change, too.

As curriculum changes, teachers must adapt and strive to meet the needs of their students. I enjoy creating resources of my own but sometimes someone else has already done it. Why reinvent the wheel? Teachers Pay Teachers helps me find resources easily and focus on what matters most - meeting the needs of kids! A gift card will allow me to purchase more outstanding resources, created by teachers, to support our daily STEM and literacy lessons, as well as supplement our STEM after-school enrichment club. With these new resources, my students will participate in exciting literacy centers, use interdisciplinary Bee-Bot boards, play math games, and enjoy new STEM activities. The resources will allow me to differentiate lessons and make learning fun for kids!
