My Students

Our district is one of the most diverse in the nation. Our students come from a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds, speak multiple languages and perform on a wide range of academic abilities. It is amazing to educate children who are so different from one another. They have some of the most fun and vibrant personalities and I am excited everyday I am able to work with them. I have never met more hardworking students!

With all of the demands we put on our young students, they deserve a chance to learn through hands-on activities, in a fun and engaging environment.

We try our best as a school and community to present our students with creative ways to express their knowledge. I am so excited to bring new opportunities to my students. I can't wait to inspire them to become more motivated learners and kinder citizens.

My Project

Our students need bandaids to fix minor injuries in the classroom so they are not spending their learning time going to the nurse. With everything we have to learn, it is crucial that students are in the classroom as much as possible. We also need individually packaged petroleum jelly to use as chapstick during the cold winter months. Chapped lips are painful and a huge distraction to a students learning. We need them individually packaged because it is much more sanitary than everyone putting their fingers in the same jar. The baby wipes will be really useful for students to keep their tables and areas clean throughout the day. We are trying everything we can to fight off flu bugs and colds this season so students spend less time sick at home, and more time focused on their learning.

If students primary health and wellness needs are not met, we can not expect them to be focused on learning.

Our students are not able to make it through the day without having an afternoon snack. They often complain during our math time that their stomachs hurt or they don't feel good because they are hungry. We need some classroom snacks to get our students through the day and to fuel their minds and bodies. Help us keep our students and our classroom clean and healthy!
