My Students

I teach reading to many different classes of brilliant girls in New York City. Many of my students are English language learners and children with special needs. Most qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

All of my students are creative, thoughtful, and eager learners, and much of their knowledge this year has been expressed through their literacy and play.

It has been so exciting to see them fully engaged each day as they learn through collaboration and play with their peers.

I teach 27 bright and beautiful second graders in a high-needs area of New York. My students and I have been working intensively to get to grade level proficiency in reading. We set realistic reading goals and are working to make at least one year's growth. They have a goal-setting mindset.

My Project

Having a color printer in the classroom will go a long way to increase access to technology for my students. It would also be a great motivator for them to put in their best because they know their work can be printed out and displayed in color for all to see, and my students are always excited about showing off their best and brightest work. Additionally, they would be more motivated to learn how to use the computer to create beautiful finished products, a critical skill in this digital age.

Having access to a color printer to print out their work would be a great motivator for my students and would go a long way to boost their 21st century skills.

It would also make them more excited about learning and improve their comprehension because they would be able to see things in color. I am also asking for paper and a laminator so that we can preserve all the beautiful work!
