My Students

My fourth graders are the most motivated, hard working students who come to school each and every day eager to learn. They enjoy reading, writing, math, working in partnerships, and all hands-on activities.

I truly believe that all children deserve whatever is necessary to enhance their learning, though sometimes it is financially difficult to provide them with all that they need.

With your support, we can make their learning dreams come true. My class and I will greatly appreciate all donations sent our way, no matter the amount. Thank you so much for your kind and generous support for my happy, wonderful, silly, fun-loving and amazing students!

My Project

My students are working on so many projects simultaneously that having readily available supplies for their academic endeavors has become a constant struggle. To combat this problem, many of my teaching colleagues have been utilizing a resource for their students called, Chair Organizers.

I am seeking a classroom set of Chair Organizers to help my students organize their hands-on STEM supplies, books, and art materials.

Students will love Chair Organizers storage pockets for holding: take home folders, binders, class books, reading materials, library books, papers, work folders and more.

Organization is the first step to early STEM learning. Students can spend more time getting ready to learn then searching and digging around for their supplies or books. Students will have more time to be on-task and engaged in learning. The Chair Organizers will keep the whole classroom organized because every student will have personalized storage. The Chair Organizers are sturdy and machine washable making them last year after year which is another positive factor. Thank you for your consideration.
