My Students

You cannot solve a problem from the frame of mind that created the problem in the first place. – Albert Einstein

Children in my 4th Grade Gifted Class have a hunger for learning that makes my job as a teacher fun and rewarding!!

My children love exploring hands on, learning by example, and working with their peers. Some of the many traits that make amazing citizens and students! Whether they come from the affluential side of the district or the low income- they treat eachother with respect and kindness- qualities they know to be so important in life and learning! Being in a gifted program like my students, takes hard work, dedication, determination, and the ability to mainain their focus during difficult and lengthy tasks. They put 100% effort and then some- truly making me proud!

My Project

In our classroom, my fourth graders work tirelessly to obtain incredible goals. They work hard and deserve to be in the best element to do so.

If I could fund my project, These items will tremendously aid in my students' ability to maintain their focus while giving them a release they deserve.

It will also help my more fidgety students find an outlet to channel their energy so they can remain focused throughout their day. My students will use wobble stools to help them focus while while working in groups or on independent projects. The Giant chair rubber bands will allow their feet the freedom to "dance" in place while still participating in our daily lessons without having to actually get out of their seat. Finally, lightweight, portable stools will allow them the freedom to sit anywhere, work in groups easier or move closer to the activpanel if vision becomes an issue at any point during a lesson.
