My Students

The students that I see are working just below grade level. They understand where they are performing and are eager to improve. I work with students from Kindergarten up to 5th grade. We work in thirty minute increments targeting their specific needs using data from periodic assessments. The majority of my students have shown growth throughout each school year. They are hard working students that sincerely want to catch up to their peers and try their best to do so.

My Project

I have been using the same color pencils and crayon boxes for the last 3 to 4 years. While they still work, they are in dire need of being replaced. The students are excited to use art materials but they get disappointed when the grab a broken box of colored pencils only to find them in poor condition.

The boxes we have are missing colors, have their boxes taped together, and the colors we have are wearing to stubs.

We also need to restock classroom scissors and need a classroom pencil sharpener. Our old deceased pencil sharpeners will live on in our hearts but we need a new one to take their place.
