My Students

Welcome to my first grade class of 22 energetic, full of life students. They are eager to learn and love to explore new and exciting things.

While resources are limited, we try to give them as much exposure and experience as we can pack into their ever-growing brains.

Our school is Title 1 school with most of our students receiving free and reduced lunch.

Please help us grow our students into the best they can be through your generous offerings.

My Project

These books will help build my student's science background. They love to learn about science-related skills. Our classroom library is lacking in science-related nonfiction books.

I cannot wait to broaden their minds in the science field.

These books will help to broaden their vocabulary skills as well as background knowledge in science. This will allow them an understanding to dig deeper with their science knowledge. With so much emphasis in the ELA and Math curriculum, I would like to expand more knowledge in the science curriculum. I would appreciate any help you can give to enhance their skills.
