In my seventh-grade geography classroom, students discover and explore the world. They begin to develop an understanding of their role as global citizens and the influence they can have on their community.
The student makeup of my school is extremely diverse.
My school educates some of the highest percentages of African-American, Hmong and Latino students in the district. Many of our students come from economically challenged households. As close to seventy percent of our student body qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch. One out of five students is a special education learner.
I am honored to be able to educate these amazing students. They are thoughtful, creative and they work hard. They deserve the very best. I want their classroom to be a safe, fun and exciting environment in which to learn. I strive to make school feel like a second home. I want my classroom to look the way I make my students feel which is empowered, happy and creative.
The items in this project are materials and classroom supplies my students need to be successful in the 2019-2020 school year. Consumable materials like tape, pencils, and sharpies are always in high demand. The all-purpose cleaner and tissues will help to keep the students healthy all year. The classroom supplies, such as the tape dispenser and three-hole punch, are in need of replacement. Our whole school runs on a three-ring binder organizational system, so a heavy duty punch is a must!
Having easy access to these basic materials will allow students to focus on their educational needs.
Students won't need to worry about where to find a pencil, or where they can punch papers to stay organized when this project is funded. Instead, they can come into class, get the materials they need and begin learning!
