My students are jumping in head first into a brand new culture for them, a new way of life, and are loving every minute of it. They enjoy each others company and feel safe around one another which makes my job easier. They are a vibrant group that enjoy learning and when given material they can understand, work well. Now if I can only get them to stop talking.
My students are primarily from Latin American countries, like in the Caribbean.
Their grades range from 6-8 grade. They have great spirits and show a desire to learn. Even though they have not known each other for very long they share a connection probably derived from their similar backgrounds. They have only been in the US for a short number of years; some are added to my class a week after they arrive from their countries. You may find it hard to tell who is new to the class after a week or so because they become acclimated so quickly. They are a good bunch and with your help, I hope to give them the solid and meaningful education that they deserve.
Every student in my class will have the supplies that they need to finish their work in a timely manner so they can focus on getting work done instead of of waiting for supplies. Scissors are hard to come by and the cheap ones break quickly or get worn fast. Glue works well I find but it is too messy. Clear tape will give my students' binders the clean and scholarly look a science binder should reflect. I would like to help my students create binders they can carry with them throughout their entire education even into college. Thank you donors.
