My Students

Anyone who knows me at all knows that my students mean the absolute world to me! Ever since becoming a student teacher at this school three years ago, I fell in love with the incredible kids, and working in this wonderful school became my #1 goal. After two years now as a teacher, my love for them is stronger than I honestly ever thought it could be. Who knew you could have so much love and adoration for kids that aren't actually yours??

My sweet, young students are over-comers of many obstacles, challenges, and labels that some of us could never imagine.

The population I serve has a high poverty rate. About 99% of my students receive free or reduced price lunch and about 95% are English language learners. Many of the students receive backpack weekend lunches, and they sometimes receive dental and optometrist services through our school nurse and school sponsors. While some see these as setbacks, it's incredible to see the joy and motivation that comes from these little ones through their desire and excitement about coming to school.

My Project

This project is for only one item: a kidney table for my classroom. With limited space in my room, I want to make sure that I'm utilizing the area for the kids first and foremost. I am hoping to get rid of my teacher desk and replace it with a kidney table so that my teacher space can double as an area my kids can use as well.

Kidney tables are expensive and in high-demand in elementary schools, so there are none available for me in the school already.

I will use this table to conduct small group and one-on-one lessons with students. It will also take up less space than a teacher desk, which will allow me to utilize classroom space for things such as a reading corner and a morning meeting spot.
