My Students

My students come in to my classroom every day excited to learn. They come from many different backgrounds and a variety of cultures but they are all eager to be successful and make a difference in the world. Each one has a vision for their future.

For many of my students, school is the most stable environment in their lives.

I teach in a Title I elementary school in Florida where the majority of students are on free or reduced-price lunch. Their living and family situations are not ideal but each one has a desire to learn and make someone proud.

Some students are in transitional housing, some live in homeless shelters or with multiple generations. Their individual needs may be different depending on the economic struggles they face but each day we work together to meet everyone's social emotional needs. My students have empathy, compassion and are kind. We are working to make the world a better place by learning together.

My Project

These bookcases will help my students keep their books and materials at their tables. We have received several reading books and students need a place to keep their independent reading books nearby. Currently my students have cubicles at the back of the room for their belongings, this requires them to either leave their things in a pile on their table or at the back of the room and continuously get up.

My students need organization for their learning tools.

This is the final year in elementary school for my students and they need help figuring out how to stay organized before they move on to middle school. Having the appropriate tools to help them with their books and materials will give them the opportunity to be successful.
