My Students

Here at our elementary school, it is more than a school, it's a place where everyone is able to focus on every child's needs.

My 5th graders are beyond amazing because they are the future of our society.

My students come to school every day ready to learn with smiles on their faces. I love coming to work, and they love coming to school. My classroom is a place of love. Most of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch and live in bilingual households. They are outspoken, humorous, and a joy to be around. They're eager to learn new reading and math skills.

My Project

No one wants to walk into a dull classroom, so I hope to change that with your help. My students are eager to learn; however, that can be challenging when the learning space is so dull. I want to liven up our classroom with different classroom decor, so our classroom can feel and look like a learning paradise. Labels for their folders would keep us organized, bulletin broad materials will enhance our class physical appearance, and magnetic border strips will help the students and myself stay organized. I want to create an environment that makes our classroom feel like a second home.
