My Students

My students are a diverse group of individuals that come from all different parts of the five boroughs. My classroom is an ICT with a mix of both students with disabilities and ENL learners.

My students are bright individuals with various academic levels of learning needs.

They value the importance of learning for growth and development. Being that we are a Title I school, there are high percentages of students that come from low-income households while still required to meet the academic standards.

We create different opportunities for student learning and growth in the classroom that is tailored to their learning needs. It is important for my students to learn from one another and value the importance of their education as young children.

My Project

As the school year is coming near and our budget has been affected by the pandemic, I need the following materials to help plan, organize, and teach my students, whether it will be through blended, remote, or in- person learning. The binders and dividers will help me organize and provide easy access to each student's portfolio and work throughout the school year. The binder rings will also provide students with easy access to words that they need to practice or strategies that they can easily look for. The dry erase pockets will be a great alternative for students to use. Based on my experience as a teacher, these supplies are in high demand in the classroom on a daily basis.

The variety of materials that are requested will either be used by my students or will help me plan, prepare, and organize activities for my students.
