My Students

This will be my fourth year teaching second grade in a public school in a large city in California. The students at our school come with diverse backgrounds, cultures, languages, and families. As educators, community members, parents, and a school community we embrace the diversity among our community and honor all children we teach. For my second students, I want to provide a classroom that fosters the multitude of learning styles and experiences that push my students to believe in themselves. In my classroom there are no mistakes, only opportunities to keep learning and growing. I want to create a comfortable space that encourages a love for learning and supports each student on their individual education quest while valuing their individuality, background, and talents.

My Project

We're almost out of paper for copying/printing, ink for printing, crayons, colored pencils, dry erase markers, sharpie markers, scissors, index cards for spelling and laminating sheets. We also need more reading group books (Dork Diaries and Diary of a Wimpy Kid sets), a new pencil sharpener since ours broke from so much use, more headphones for the Chromebooks as they break and center activities such as magna tiles.... if we need to continue to use all of the above materials every day, you can bet we'll almost be out in no time!

You'd be amazed at how much paper and ink it takes to make homework for 24 students every week, and that's just the start of it.

That doesn't take into account how many crayons, colored pencils, dry erase markers, laminating sheets, and sharpie markers we go through.

Our students work hard and accomplish so much everyday, but to do this it takes a lot of supplies. We rely on the same few parents to donate, but by this time of the year money is thin and we need help from other sources. Crayons get broken and headphones break already by this point in the year, and having replacements allow us to focus on the important work of learning. Things like reading books and working on STEM center activities which are needed items as well.
