My Students

My students are excited and eager learners. They are never afraid to ask questions and voice their thoughts on a topic. I am truly inspired by their ability to push through even the hardest of lessons.

My students are also some of the kindest children I have met.

They made my job easy when it came to setting up a community centered classroom. They are eager to help each other and take pride when they can help a fellow teammate.

My Project

The books that are listed are part of our social studies standards. Students will be able to travel through our history with the help of each book listed.

Help create a welcoming environment for students to read.

Each item is selected to help create a student centered classroom where students can grow. The desk is for students to create their own writing with materials just at hand's reach with markers, erasers, pencils, and paper. The storage cart and toolbox will be used to store writing and reading materials such as paper, pencils, highlighters, and post-its. The document camera will be used to project projects, stories, and student work onto the Promethean Board for all students to see. Student work will be hung with the use of clips.
