My Students

My students are very special learners.

We try and make our classroom a safe and fun learning environment.

I want each and every student to leave my classroom every afternoon having learned something new. We are a class that works together to achieve our goals. We strive to always be helpful and respectful friends.

I try and make every student excited about learning. When you are excited to learn, than learning happens. When you grow as a learner than everything is possible!

My Project

Our class is missing a library center. We had a big old book shelf last year that broke, and now we have no where to store our books. We don't have a lot of room in our classroom, but we really need our library. Having a space safer book shelf will make it easy to fit in a perfect spot in our classroom.

Having individual book bins will make the shelf much more organized.

Having the books on a shelf that is organized will make it easier for all the students to find a book they are interested in and read it.
