My Students

We are a team. In my classroom, we focus on the unique qualities that each student brings to our room. We pride ourselves in being supportive of each other. Students at my school come to me from all walks and challenges of life while bringing unique personalities that make us stronger. They come eager to learn and to participate in the various experiences they are offered. They are curious to try new strategies to become better learners while having fun doing it. My students take pride in their success and growth in all academic areas. I am very proud of their ownership of learning.

My Project

Last year I had a significant amount of kids miss way too much school because of sickness. It is very difficult to catch kids up on their work when they have missed multiple days of school. One of my goals for this year is to keep kids clean, healthy, and at school. We would use the disinfectant wipes on a regular basis to wipe down desks, chairs, door knobs, and other areas. My 6th graders enjoy cleaning the classroom and creating a healthy environment. They often ask to clean and freshen up our classroom. It is satisfying to witness the pride they take in helping each other apply healthy habits. The Kleenex will help our classroom through flu and cold season to decrease the spreading of germs. I believe more students would be at school if we have the necessary supplies in my project.
