My Students

My students are an amazing group of third, fourth, fifth and sixth graders who are full of energy and have a thirst for knowledge. They come from a variety of homes and lifestyles, from one-bedroom rental property to family farms. Many students in our small, rural community come to school to feel safe and loved.

"Every child is a different kind of flower, and altogether make this world a beautiful garden"~ Anonymous.

Over half of our students qualify for free or reduced-price meals. As a teacher in a low-income school, it is hard to obtain the resources needed for my students to become successful learners.

My Project

A projector and document camera will be used to display important lessons on my whiteboard. When projected on the whiteboard, it will be easier for my entire group to see.

"When a flower doesn't bloom you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower" - Alexander Den Heijer.

I will be using Foundations with my students in Title I next year. There are many things in this system that has to be projected on the whiteboard.

Having a projector and document camera will help tremendously with this!

The scissors, stapler, hole punch will be used for everyday things in the classroom.
