My Students

Our classroom community is full of energy, curiosity, and hard work. My students often ask "Why?" because they are eager to learn more about the world. Their curiosity inspires me to bring more real-world experiences to the classroom.

These active learners are eager to engage through concrete and real-life learning experiences.

Students can benefit (and often need) concrete and real-life examples to help make math concepts come to life. They are eager to engage in hands-on activities to help them learn and grow.

My Project

I am seeking to provide my students with tools to help them develop their minds and bodies. Specifically, I am asking for yoga mats so students can safely practice yoga indoors and outdoors. Additionally, I want my students to have individual water bottles so they can be healthy with their liquid intake. Many of my students reuse plastic water bottles. Additionally, I want students to have access to culturally relevant texts that will give them a chance to see themselves in literature. Lastly, I would like students to have access to texts that expose them to the beauty of the world.

The yoga mats, water bottles, and culturally relevant texts will help students develop their bodies and minds.

I thank you in advance for helping my students.
