Hey, I'm Penny
This is my seventh year teaching, after a midlife career change. I love children, and nothing is more gratifying to me than seeing a student become proud of their own achievements and take charge of their own learning!

What will the funds be used for
I am a fourth grade teacher to 30 students this year, many of whom have a lot of pent up, excess energy and a couple of whom are diagnosed ADHD. Our curriculum is very demanding and requires focus for long periods of time throughout the day. I would like help purchasing student desk bouncy bands, which allow students to move their feet in silence without distracting others as they work. (See Picture in my photos.) I’ve used these before and they are lifesavers for both students and teachers! Thank you for helping me keep students focused while learning this year.
