My students have the greatest personalities. They are so charismatic and have such a drive and determination to do better everyday. They always have smiles on their faces despite all of the adversity they face. I consider it such a privilege to teach them everyday. The way they take care of each warms my heart. We have become an instant family in such a short time.
My students are special because their thirst for knowledge is insatiable.
I have never had a group of students who were this self motivated and always questioned or thought beyond what they were being taught. They also with my help have created and built an amazing classroom culture and community. They truly encourage each other and take risk. The students are not afraid to try something knew. My students love saying it's not that you can't do it; you just don't know it Yet. That is so powerful and they believe in the power of YET. They know that they may not understand something the first time , but if they keep a positive mindset and continue to try their best they will learn it. This semester has been so great.
All of the materials requested for this project are needed for my students to be successful. It is my goal to have 100 percent passing on STAAR this year and leave no child behind. The printer will allow me to print resources immediately. Our whole school shares one printer and we often run out of ink. This means we go months with out printing or we pay at staples to print. Many of my students don't have pencils for school or to use at home. With your help we can will eliminate that being a stress for them and myself. My students are English language learners. They need as many visuals of academic vocabulary as I can give them. That is why the chart markers are so important. I use them often and they often times run out. I am not asking for much just the materials that are heavily needed. I would be eternally grateful and so would my students if you were able to support us.
