My Students

The scholars in our room are an enthusiastic group of 4th graders who enter class each day with a handshake and a smile. They come to their community ready to learn and grow together. This year, they will be focused on growing their academic discussion skills, and are very intent on learning how to actively listen to one another's ideas.

Our school has been growing as a PreK-8, and is recognized in our district for the wonderful progress we have made within our community.

Many of our families are first or second generation immigrants and most speak a second language other than English at home. The area, while low socioeconomically, is rich with the support of enthusiastic, ready-to-learn children and their families. We are an inclusion school, so students with special needs are supported in our general education classrooms.

The environment on our campus is focused on maintaining high academic rigor and expectations while nurturing students as caring citizens. Our classroom mirrors this school focus; my scholars work to be mindful in their schoolwork as well as their ability to be their best selves.

My Project

Walking into a classroom where materials are strewn about can be overwhelming. When things are tidy and organized, students feel calm and ready to learn. This project will provide students with an organized classroom, which will allow them to become independent learners.

Being able to find the right paper or to quickly access their favorite book makes a big difference in students' ability to stay focused and maximize their class time.

These paper organizers and book boxes will do just that. They give students specific locations to access those materials that they need at any given time. The magnets and hangers allow us to mount posters and student work on the white board easily.
