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 in STEM book clubs exploring natural disasters such as; hurricanes, tornadoes, and volcanic eruptions. They need a place to store their materials for their research projects. Right now we are using cardboard boxes. It would be great to be able to store their books and materials in a more organized way.

The children are very excited about this unit and we're constantly going back and forth retrieving their supplies.

It is difficult to work like this and we'd like to have a more permanent place for our new STEM unit. This is the first year for this unit and we're learning the hard way that it involves quite a bit of storage.
