My Students

I teach at a great school in the South Bronx where students come to school ready to learn despite their circumstances. Our school is located in a high poverty area and many of our students live in housing projects, shelters or in single parent homes. Despite some of these struggles our students see our school as their second home. They feel safe and loved by all of the staff. We are a true community of learners striving to be a little better each day. Despite this sense of community many of our students are unable to come to school with the supplies they need. I teach third grade literature and art to over sixty students. I teach all the reading and writing fiction units and also incorporate visual thinking strategies using art pieces to develop accountable talk. I often see my school as, "The Little Engine that Could," because every year we make progress. We are city wide Renewal and Showcase School where we open our doors to schools in NYC to come visit and see our best practices!

My Project

Organization and storage space are key to effectively teaching, running and setting up a classroom. Teaching at a departmentalized school, it is crucial that all of my students have a place to keep materials while they are in my class, that's safe, neat, and intact.

The furniture I'm requesting will help tremendously in allowing me to organize all of the materials my students need in a visually appealing and organized way.

My students will be able to locate materials a lot faster, know where to put things back quicker and this in turn allows us to spend more in our learning. It will also save us time with transitions as students will know exactly where things are and where to put things back. Lastly, they will have a nook in the room of their very own where the materials of their class and classmates is kept. This allow students to have a sense of ownership in the classroom and a safe place to store their work, supplies, etc.
