My Students

The elementary school that I work at is such a special place! This year is our first year being open and we have hit the ground running. Our students come to school each day ready to take on another day of learning. I am proud to say that every staff member at my school strives to provide the best place to learn for our students.

My goal is to create a school and classroom environment that is inviting, engaging, meaningful and full of passion!

My classroom is a safe place where learning is fun but adds meaning to their lives.

My students are the most enthusiastic group of students I have had yet. Each and every one of them brings something unique to our classroom. Despite coming from low income backgrounds, they deserve the very best! Thanks to your donations, I will continue to be able to do whatever I can to help my students succeed and move on to be successful members of society!

My Project

Our school will be implementing a house system this Spring semester. I was able to attend an amazing professional development at the Ron Clark Academy in September that gave me this idea. The house system will help us to build a stronger community and family within our school. The house system we will be implementing is composed of five houses. Each house represents a character trait, has a color, and an animal.

We would love to give each student a t-shirt and wristband so that they can represent their house on spirit days!

The purpose of houses is to provide students with a sense of belonging. These t-shirts and wristbands would help students feel that they are a part of something bigger than themselves. Our school is a Title 1 school and many of our families would not be able to purchase additional attire for their children. We want to give them this awesome gift of belonging and we need your help!
