My Students

Musical, creative, inquisitive, and energetic: these are all words that describe my students. They love to sing, move, play instruments, and learn in hands-on ways. They love to use drums, Orff instruments, and ukuleles in our music room, and they love to perform.

Around 25% of our students come from military families, and this brings them their own unique set of challenges.

We have also received new students from Puerto Rico due to Hurricane Maria. I want to teach them a love for music that will last them their whole lives.

Our school, like the great majority of schools, is not immune from the misfortune of homelessness. Though our population is largely stable, we have a number of students who experience homelessness in some form during their time with us. For our students, being homeless is not something that defines them, but rather a circumstance that currently affects their lives. Enriching and exciting experiences at school can make their temporary homeless state more bearable.

My Project

This year, will be starting our school year by celebrating the tenth birthday of our school and dedicating our time capsule. We would like to have a small item for each student to remember this time.

These requested water bottles will be personalized for this event and will be a great momento as well as a useful item for students to stay hydrated and healthy.

Students can fill the water bottles throughout the day and especially as they begin the year in recess and PE in the hot Florida sun. I hope that these water bottles are a nice treat for our students as we start the school year!
