Ms. Reese’s Classroom Edit display name

I work at a diverse school in an urban area of Kentucky. The majority of students in my classroom are African-American and Hispanic. My school has a high English Language Learners (ELL) population and the numbers continue to increase. Many ELL students arrive from refugee camps, and speak little to no English. My students come from low income homes, and most of them come from single parent households. There are several students in my classroom, and in my school, that live with other relatives because their parents have either passed away or are unable to care for their child. Eighty-five percent of the children in my school receive free or reduced lunches. In the 2012-2013 school, I had 26 children in my classroom, and 23 out of the 26 students received free/reduced lunches. Many of the children in my school receive their meals from school, and other resources, such as clothing.
