My Students

My students are an amazing group of children hungry to learn. They are wonderful, loving children. They do well with structure and organization.

Some of them are having difficult childhoods.

They have many special needs but are eager to succeed. They enter the classroom each day full of energy and excitement for what is in store for them on that day.

One hundred percent of my students receive free breakfast and lunch. We are working on improving student outcomes by reaching out to

My Project

The students will have everything they need from the first day of school to learn organizational skills and begin the path to success. Students will have a folder in which I can send home notes and work, and students can bring back their homework daily in an organized manner. Students will have their own pencil case to hold their pencils, pencil sharpeners, crayons, and glue. Students will bring home the pencil case daily and prepare their pencils for the next day to save time wasted looking for school supplies.

In order for success, students will have different notebooks for different subjects.

Students will have a math notebook, a notebook for literacy, and a writing notebook.

Grades PreK-2
More than half of students from low‑income households
