I work in a Title I middle school in Texas. All of my students are considered economically disadvantaged. They face a range of other challenges every single day. The majority of the students I work with have a variety of learning disabilities such as ADHD, emotional disturbance or have experienced trauma in their lives. My students are kind, hard-working and amazing. They make me proud every day.
I set high expectations for my students and I am constantly amazed by their efforts despite the many challenges they face.
My students continue to help me grow into a better educator and inspire me every day.
For many of my students, school is very challenging and it can be difficult for them to focus. Some of these items, like the colorful paper, pens, and sticky notes will help students to be more engaged in their learning.
My students need access to these important basics to be successful in class.
I will be able to create fun and engaging lessons with these materials.
We also need tissues, hand sanitizer, and Clorox wipes to all stay healthy! When one person gets sick at school, you can almost guarantee that several students from the same class will catch it. These items will help keep us happy and healthy!
