My Students

My class is full of spunky and excited lovers of learning! My students live in a rural town where we all are one big community. The classroom is no different! My students help one another, encourage one another, and love on one another.

"We are not "just teachers," we are the managers of the world's greatest resource: children!"-Robert John Meehan

Our children are the future!

My students are so bright and just light up when they come into the room. They love to learn and they are the sweetest group of 5 and 6 year olds you will ever meet! They are full of energy empowered to learn!

My Project

My students now sit at tables that are unsafe and so old that the legs keep breaking and giving way while they are sitting under them. I have had to repair them almost daily. The tables are very old and heavy. I am very fearful someone will get hurt one day because of them. We would sure love some new tables for our room to be able to write on and trust they are safe.

If my students do not have a solid writing surface to work on we will not be able to learn how to write or even be successful in preparing them for first grade!
