My Students

My amazing 3rd graders attend a large public elementary school in the South Bronx, where nearly all students come from low-income households.

My bilingual classroom is comprised of Spanish speaking students at a beginning level of English speaking proficiency.

They come from many different Spanish speaking countries including the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Honduras, Puerto Rico, El Salvador, and Peru. They step into my classroom every day eager to learn and willing to work hard. As their teacher I want to provide them with the tools, opportunities, and experiences that they need to be successful in life.

My Project

Every year I have families that struggle to purchase their child's basic school supplies. My students need school supplies such as; notebooks, paper, pencils, a pencil sharpener, and erasers to complete the school year. Having these items are essential for all students to use everyday to be able to accomplish multiple tasks. Every student within the classroom needs these school supplies to be able to understand the information they are taking in. Something as simple as a pencil or a piece of paper is the gateway to a universe of information for any child. Unfortunately most of my students are not able to afford them.

My project will make a difference because students will have the necessary tools to finish the school year.

Proving the students with these materials will help them organize their work and concentrate better in their learning.
