My Students

My students are fun, energetic and eager to learn in the classroom. As we all know, most students do not LOVE math as much as I do, so I make it a point to show my love for all things Math to all of my students.

Our school is located in an urban area of Philadelphia, where our students come from all different kinds of backgrounds.

All of our students can obtain a free hot breakfast and lunch through our Title I funding.

My main goal is to ensure that each child can be successful in the classroom. When their needs are met, I know that I have done my part in helping them reach their success.

My Project

My classroom runs like a well-oiled machine. Except, with ninety students coming in and out every day, our materials sometimes get misplaced. With the requested materials in this project, we will be able to properly store our supplies and activity papers.

The storage organizers and mailboxes will allow my students to have a personal space for their materials.

With the extra storage and classroom supplies, my students will be better equipped to master their skills while staying focused and organized.

The requested pencil and colored pencil sharpeners will be great in keeping us on point and working with adequately prepared writing utensils. While the paper will be put to great use in providing math activities for my students to complete in class.
