My Students

I have yet to meet my students for this upcoming school year of 2019-2020! But I know they are going to be creative, kind, and a great part of the classroom community! So, in turn, I want to create an amazing environment as a first-year teacher! In order to do this, I need help to provide for my incoming students! My students will be in third grade ESE mixed classroom and I just can’t wait to meet them for the first time!

My Project

Learning how to write properly is essential for students so I want to bring an organized and comfy writing center to my future classroom! These chairs will be an amazing flexible seating addition to the classroom along with two bean bags that I have in another project!

I’m also really excited to finally have a great way to organize the writing center because if the classroom isn't organized how would I expect my students to produce amazing writing work!

All of these items will be such an amazing asset to our classroom and really enhance our learning environment for every student!
