My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to foster their creativity and provide my students with productive and meaningful learning experiences.

Our 5th grade is made up of 35 amazing, inquisitive and creative students, many whom come from bilingual households receiving free or reduced priced lunch.

They like to ask questions, they love to read, and crave lots of positive attention. Teaching in a low-income environment comes with several challenges. Many of my students do not have access to technology at home which puts them at a disadvantage. I strive to create an environment where learning is hands on and fun.

My Project

I would love to have Scholastic News Magazine for my 5th grade class. These highly engaging magazines bring current events into our classroom. I want my students to know that there is a world outside of our little community. I will be using the magazines weekly to encourage the students to discuss and debate the articles and to enjoy reading about the many interesting places, events, and people in their world. These magazines will also help with reading fluency and comprehension skills which we are always trying to improve!

I want my students to have a deeper understanding of the world around them.

Awareness can build inspiration Inspiration can build empathy.
