    You are being led and obedient. He clearly has His hand on you. The love of children and to be able to love them is contagious. Enjoy!

    No matter, always remember your why. Things will get super tough, you will question your calling but remember with God all things are possible.

About Make Ms. S a Success! (Classroom Startup)

Hey y'all! 

Starting in August I will be teaching freshman biology to an incoming class of about 300 students. Not only have I inherited an amazing classroom, I also have a laboratory! While this is amazing and exciting, there are a number of items I need to purchase for not only 1 room, but 2! Since this is my first classroom, I am looking to purchase items that will be used from year to year (pencil sharpener, document camera, stapler, bulletin boards,) and some items specific to the school year (paper, composition notebooks, notecards, stickers). 

The purpose of my MTR give campaign is to provide my students and myself with the most success possible from the very first day of school. It is my hope to create a safe, fun and welcoming atmosphere that allows my students to feel at home and at peace during the school day. I would love for this to be a personal process and for everyone to feel as if their dollar counts. I am linking my Amazon wishlist so that you can see exactly where your money is going.

Here is a snapshot of how every dollar counts:
$12 buys a pack of 150 pencils and a 36 pack of erasers (classroom set). 
$40 buys a classroom set of colored pencils (packs of 8-12).
$100 buys 3 reams of copy paper, whiteboard markers and highlighters. 

Thank you in advance for your love and support! I look forward to starting my first year teaching knowing how many people both near and far are pouring into the lives of my students!
