My Students

Fourth grade class of students with a newer teacher! As a career change educator I want to give my students all that they need to help them succeed. I am teaching math and science to two classes.

My students are all different with different interests.

Learning is fun! I hope to instill a love of learning. I want them to feel like they are traveling the world through books and having fun too! Math and science are fun and I want my students to be excited about them.

My Project

Stem is such a large part of student learning. As a math and science teacher it is my job to help my students learn and grow. These lessons in math and science could help guide the students into future careers.

Math manipulatives and basic classroom supplies such as white boards and graph paper are essential in learning.

Student based centers are key in the classroom. Science activity centers will help the students to truly understand how things work. Please help my students by allowing them to have white boards to answer questions in class and show their work. The math folders and centers will allow students to practice skills independently and collaboratively. The science kits will help students show what they learn about matter, electricity, force and more.

Please help support my students in their learning and development. Many students don't have the necessary school supplies. Everything you give can help so many students.
