My Students

My students are smart, caring and always ready to solve problems. Our school has many dedicated teachers who provide rigorous instruction to students in pre-kindergarten to fifth grade. Our goal is to motivate, challenge and prepare our students for success in high school, college and their future careers.

My third grade class is comprised of eighteen creative and hardworking students from diverse backgrounds.

They come to school each day excited to learn and be with one another. Some of their interests include drawing, reading, football, soccer, and jumping rope! My students look forward to coming to school, and I'd like to keep it that way!

My Project

While this year is coming to a close, I am also thinking ahead and planning for my new students in August. In order to start the school year off fresh and positively, I need to replenish classroom supplies to make my classroom clean and inviting! The long break away from school might make students nervous to start again, so making the classroom a stress-free, welcoming place for students to come and learn is my goal!

Fresh, new, colorful supplies will help students leave their worries behind and get excited about school again!

New markers, pencils, erasers, construction paper and more are always exciting to see on the first day of school. These will all come in handy for school work as well as our many fun art projects throughout the school year. The broom and dustpan will keep my classroom neat every day and help students clean up after themselves.

The magazine holders, file folders, labels, magnetic rod, Stikki clips, and magnetic pockets will help keep our resources organized. Throughout the year, there are many papers that end up on the floor or in multiple piles around the classroom. These organization materials will make it easier to store papers we use daily!

Some items to spice up the classroom are the microphone, light up buttons, and the mini flashlights. When we film videos for projects, it is so hard to hear the students speaking. The microphone will help everyone hear the wonderful things the students learned during these videos and class presentations. The light up buttons will will tell me who is in the bathroom and the mini flashlights are for Flash Light Fridays when we have independent reading time in the dark! I'm so excited to utilize all these materials! Thank you for your support!
