Ms. Ritacco from Silt CO is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need replacement items (chairs, markers, storage stand) for our well-loved, well-used classroom.
I have never in my life met a class that is more willing to go above and beyond than the group I have now. They go above and beyond academically, despite their hardships at home, and with this comes a love and a bond that is unimaginable. I never have a day where I am not excited to go to work. Every morning, I can expect hugs from every single one of my students and stories about the monsters under their bed, or the crash on their rad bike ride. My students love the classroom.
I cannot believe how passionate my students are, at this age, about their own education.
I am a teacher to these children but have found that with these students, I am their role model, their stability, and their safety. I want to please them and be successful with them just as much as they want to be for me. There are moments when we get frustrated. There are moments when we laugh until we cry. And there are moments each day, where we take time to reflect on all the positivity we have. I want to give them as much as they have given me.
This is my second year as a full-time teacher, and I love it. My days are nothing but happy. My students' days are filled with curiosity, wonder, adventure, and play. When you see the word play, you might think, "Play is for home, or recess..." or you might think, "Play? For learning? Interesting!" Whatever your take is, know that play in the classroom means that my students are enjoying their learning - they are learning through movement, experience, discussion and discovery. With this play however, our room comes with some wear and tear. I am requesting a couple of items so that we can keep our room fun and innovative.
Each day we work to make the world a better place, by bettering our minds.
In order to give our minds the workout they need, I do my best to address all learning styles and all types of the multiple intelligences. With this, I strive to add colored visuals (with my markers), flexible seating (ball-chairs and clipboard options with a stand), and unique opportunities to reach the same outcomes for assessments, in ways that suit each individual student.
I want to give my students all the materials they need, to help them reach their fullest potential. With your help, I can absolutely achieve that. Just like my students, I am still a dreamer too!
