My Students

My fifth graders are inquisitive, funny and always interested in finding out more about the world around them. Initiating new prospects for them to explore is one of the most thrilling parts of my job. My fifth graders are mature enough to offer astute reactions to inquiries, yet youthful enough to have a fabulous time while learning.

Even though my students share varied backgrounds, they are all able to come together to help each other when needed, sometimes regardless of language barriers!

My Project

Having adaptable seating allow choices for the students. They can choose which seat is agreeable to their learning needs and styles. Students need a multitude of accommodations throughout the day in order to be productive. At 11 years old, even when paying attention, their bodies are used to constant movement.

A working printer in a classroom is invaluable.

I currently have 5 laptops available for 30 students, sometimes 32. While conducting research, it has proven difficult for students to research, read, take meaningful notes, and cite sources in the time allotted. Having a working printer would allow them to have a hard copy of all their research on hand. This would allow them the leisure of reading at their own pace, and time to look up unfamiliar words and take notes. I believe it would foster their independence and productivity.
