My students are a diverse and exuberant group. They are in fourth grade and are beginning to spread their wings. Some live in shelters, others are English Language Learners, many have Individualized Educational Plans. They all receive free breakfast and lunch. They face many challenges in their daily life, but come to school eager to learn. They set clear goals for themselves and try daily to come closer to meeting those goals. Many do not have access to the internet, nor do they possess a library of their own. Most of their social relationships take place in school, as the neighborhood can be unsafe. Our class is a safe place where students can share their ideas, and help their peers. We have a strong sense of community, and we exhibit empathy for each other. I care deeply about all of my students and want for them to become joyful readers and problems solvers. I know they can be.
