My Students

Our scholars come from an urban low socioeconomic area. We are the ELL program school for our town. We get new students throughout the year who are new to the country and many times have not been exposed to English.

These kids have grit and heart.

They look out for one another. Despite their various challenges, they come to school every day​ and give their best. They deserve the best rather than hand-me-downs. My students flourish in movement and collaborative activities. Music class is the perfect place to achieve this!

My Project

Each week I see 800 urban elementary school students between Kindergarten and Fifth Grade. I have the pleasure of teaching every student in the building. All of my classes are integrated or mixed including mainstream, special needs, and multi-language learners. I need some basic needs to support my students who need more supports.

Everyone loves drawing and writing on whiteboards!

It makes the work so much more exciting. We hope to get a small tabletop whiteboard and markers for each of our small group tables. This will help my students to engage in small group work and help each other. I will also be able to go around and give small group instruction using these boards. I'll be able to more specifically help each group as they need it.

We also need pencils and erasers to replenish our supply as so many students come through my room each week. Finally, we need gaffers tape to mark off centers and provide guidance around the room.

Thanks for your support!
