My Students

Curious, compassionate, and eager are the top three words to describe my students. As fifth graders, they are just embarking on their journey to find themselves and their place in the world.

At our school, we foster their continued growth by providing a safe and positive environment, while challenging students with a rigorous curriculum so that they can become life-long learners.

With increased budget cuts in our high poverty district, our already limited resources are decreasing. My students would greatly benefit from support from the community, near and far, to ensure their academic experience is rich and prepares them for years to come.

My Project

Supplies such as these are often overlooked, but make an enormous difference in productivity! Simple materials such as highlighters, staplers, and Post-Its will be used directly by the students to keep their thinking and work organized. The Pocket Chart Stand will allow a place to store Anchor Charts (student-friendly posters of specific topics/strategies) for student reference at any time throughout the year. A timer will enhance our time-management skills during class. Magnetic Board Erasers allow us to move through lessons smoothly and fix our mistakes quickly, as we will have everything we need within an arm's reach. Tissues will help keep our germs at bay, especially during flu season. Hanging folders will help me, the teacher to these incredible students, organize completed student work in an individual file.

To propel students towards success, they need the proper resources to keep them accountable, organized, and focused!
