My Students

My students are creative, funny, unique, and always willing to try something new. Being the "big dogs" in the school, they are role models to all the younger grades and strive to be a good example for the younger kids.

I love how each of my students are unique in their own way.

They all come from different backgrounds and have their own stories. I love each and every one of my kiddos as if they were my own. My students are capable of such amazing things. All they need are the right tools and guide to get them there!

My Project

In our classroom we have tables instead of desks in order to promote collaboration (which I love), but that creates some issues. My students often misplace their belongings or create a tornado of supplies all around the classroom due to the lack of storage for their things. They also miss out on important learning opportunities when they have to spend time looking for their supplies around the classroom.

These pocket organizers will provide students with their own personal place to store their belongings to save time and sanity during the school day.

Their belongings will also be right behind their seat in order to save time during transitions from one subject to another.
