Ms. Cumming’s 2nd grade class at Sevierville Primary
I love the beginning of a new school year! Setting up my 2nd grade classroom and going to the store to find the isles of school supplies signifies that very soon I will receive a brand new class of second grade students. This is a new set of children to love on, grow and build. It is often said that it takes a village to raise a child. What an honor it is to be a teacher and have this opportunity to help mold the minds and lives of our future. If you choose to contribute to our “village”, it will be very much appreciated! There is a lot of time and money that I put into my students and classroom. Being able to provide them with the extra, little things make my heart happy. It is an amazing feeling to see their eyes light with the simple things!
Ms. Burns’ Kindergarten class at East Ridge Elementary
I recently graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with a degree in early childhood and special education and completed my student teaching in a kindergarten classroom. I am extremely passionate about Kindergarten and I am so grateful that I get to have a kinder classroom of my own this year! I want nothing more than to give my students the best classroom environment and learning experience possible. It is so important to me that they feel safe, loved, and appreciated while in my classroom.
Ms. Maynard’s First grade class at Big Ridge Elementary
My class this year will consist of varying backgrounds, needs, languages spoken, and personalities. I try my very best to make each day joyous and engaging for my students. Our school motto is “We Engage Every Child Everyday.” I truly believe my classroom reflects this. I use a lot of whole brain teaching strategies to get my kids up, moving, and talking. It has been my honor and privilege to teach the most amazing students over the past 13 years and to create a community of readers, writers, thinkers, and doers.
Ms. Maharrey’s 9th grade Algebra class at East Ridge High
Most of my students come from low income households and do not have money to buy supplies. In addition to providing supplies, I also keep a closet of items like snacks, feminine hygiene products, deodorant, bandaids, toothbrushes and toothpaste. Last year, I realized that a few of my students were homeless or living on couches so the toiletries really helped. I want to make sure my students have everything they need so they can focus on learning.
