My Students

My students are spectacular! Their backgrounds vary from low to high amounts of trauma or low resources, but each student loves to be at here and work hard. They have a hunger for learning; it is so inspiring to be their teacher. The school is in a small town off of historical Route 66. Most people here have lived here all their lives; and you feel that small town welcome when you stop in. School is looked at as our second family; as a staff we make every effort to help students in and out of school.

I bring in all types of learning to my classroom; from books I've bought, comfy pillows, to an ant farm for real time learning all because my students appreciate it and love to learn!

My students often don't have access to these resources at home. I have sent books and pencils home for students who tell me they have none at their house. They always make me feel loved as well, drawing pictures to presents that they made themselves. We did a coin drive and they brought in their OWN allowance. They inspire me everyday to be a better teacher!

My Project

I will let students use the easel for center time. I will give wobble seats to students who struggle with paying attention. I will put math papers for math centers in the magnetic holders so students can easily locate papers during Math Centers.

Adding the Learning Easel to our classroom will provide a less cluttered environment, and allowing us to keep anchor charts and learning information up for a longer period of time!

A couple of my students every year struggle with paying attention and excessive energy. I have experienced better focus when a student is able to wobble in their seat.

And lastly the magnetic paper holders are such a great find! I have been searching for a way to display student work without creating more trays and being able to find a free spot to display their work so they can easily find it. It will be such a help during math centers, when they typically work on their own.
