It is my first year of teaching. I never thought this would ever happen, but I am currently a 5th grade teacher. I teach at a school with 680 students. There are 40 students from two different classes that I teach throughout the day. I teach Reading, Social Studies, and Writing. I was always told you put so much of your own money into your classroom. I have now realized they are exactly right. There's so much that is needed to allow my students the opportunities they deserve. I know they have so much potential to be successful as a student and as an individual, and I want to do whatever it takes to help get them there. Any additional help for my students would be incredible.
