My Students

I teach language arts (reading and writing) to forty-three migrant children at a Title I, Power 3, Renaissance, ERT (Extended Day), public elementary "Achievement" school in a rural part of our county. Many of these students live in a local migrant camp.

My students are sweet, thoughtful, hardworking, and have an amazing understanding of the importance of education all of which makes me very proud to be their teacher.

They attend school each day with smiles on their faces, eager to learn, and ready grow.

My Project

My students are in need of school supplies to complete their reading and writing classwork and treats to be used for rewards for exceptional behavior and completed assignments.

The notebook paper will be used to write essays and record reading data, the pens will be use to edit work and create illustrations to accompany writing assignments and the candy is a positive reinforcement to be given to students when they complete assignments or display great behavior.

These items will make a huge difference in our classroom. The school supplies will provide forty five students with the basic supplies needed to complete literacy activities and the candy will be wonderful rewards for when they successfully complete lessons.
