My students are joyful, jubilant, and inquisitive little people. They wonder about our activities in class and how they relate to the real world. I have a classroom full of third grade future mathematicians ands scientists, who tell me of aspirations of becoming successful and getting their education. Sometimes their aspirations come in the form questions such as, can we do an experiment? Or when can I do this all by myself? As a Title one assisted school we receive some funding but, most students come from an impoverished background and the Title 1 assistance is not enough. My school is working diligently to help my students reach their academic goals because we believe in them and want the best education for them.
