My Students

Most of our students come from homes and communities that are economically disadvantaged. I enjoy my job and want to do an effective job of getting my students to learn but lack the necessary resources. In order to have successful students, I am advocating for funds and materials that will help them be innovative and become equipped with the tools they need to succeed. Any materials that you can donate that are kid-friendly I can pass on to my students would be greatly appreciated. My students are awesome and eager to learn. They should be given every opportunity to continue learning in order to compete. Students can learn and progress to their fullest potential if they are provided the needed materials. Thank you for giving our students the needed materials to help foster their learning.

My Project

As the year progresses, I find that there are basic materials I need to help the students to achieve academic success. Having a room that is fresh and inviting is definitely a must. I also find that the students need individual items such as index cards to do their vocabulary words, or erasers that will help them neatly clean up any mistakes they've made. Students need to feel they're important also. Recognizing their birthday and rewarding them for good behavior or a job well done will definitely help with classroom management. Thank you in advance for your support!!
