My students are amazing. They work hard and give their best every day. I love watching them make choices that support their success as they get excited about learning and their confidence grows.
I teach at a Title I focus school in Kansas City, Missouri, where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch and few arrive with requested supplies.
Last year, with the help of DonorsChoose.org and community partners, my students went from having the lowest test scores in the building to the highest. To accomplish this, we created an environment that fully supported student learning using restorative justice and flexible seating. Our district recently reorganized grade levels moving 6th grade from elementary schools to middle schools. This year, your support helped our 6th graders transition from elementary to middle school a comfortable, inviting collaborative learning space.
My students have been studying ancient civilizations for the past 5 weeks. They have worked collaboratively to research the golden ages of Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, China, Greece, and Rome. Over the next 2 weeks, the students will be working museum exhibit displays.
We are very excited about presenting our projects to teachers, parents, students, and elected officials during our Ancient Civilization Museum Exhibit.
To ensure the success of our exhibit, we need presentation boards to display our artifact reproductions and information about how each civilization has contributed to how we live today, and its geography, government, economy, people, and culture.
