My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Second Grade is such a fun year of learning and exploring!

I love the enthusiasm that my students bring with them each day to school!

Our school is nestled in the heart of Meridian, Idaho, which was once a small town, and has now boomed to be one of the largest in population!

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

I would like help funding supplies for my VIP desk in my room. I am attempting to set up a special area in my room for students to work for an opportunity to sit at. Students who show perseverance, strong work ethic, responsibility, and ownership with their learning will be able to earn a trip to the desk. The desk will be stocked with supplies that will make them shine as a student.

My second graders are the future of our country and I want to motivate them to try their very best every day!

I am looking to fund a special chair for them to sit at while at the desk, as well as a shelf to store their super cool books and supplies. I am also asking for a couple of fun things to jazz up the desk such as a sharpener, a jumbo calculator, and a jumbo eraser!

My hopes are that this desk will motivate other students, who are not at the desk, to try their best each day to earn a chance to sit their. I will be able to use it to teach kids about the real world and the chances they will get when they try their best.

Thank you for the time and consideration you have given my project! I appreciate your support, and allowing my students a chance at this opportunity!
