My Students

The students at my school are an energetic and hardworking group of children. They enjoy coming to school, but school funding cuts over the years have impacted what schools can provide to individual classrooms.

I teach second grade in an urban neighborhood where all the students at school are eligible for free breakfast and free lunch.

Some students live below the poverty line and their families struggle to provide them with basic necessities needed to be successful in school. Despite these obstacles, our school has hard-working students, as well as teachers and staff, who strive to make our school a welcoming and inviting place. In addition, our school is one of the top-performing schools in the city.

My Project

This project is for some basic school supplies to help the classroom. Our pencil sharpener just stopped working this week and we desperately one that is made for heavy duty use. Pencils are always needed, especially to get us through the next part of the school year. I like to have a supply of sharpened pencil for each group so that students can get started on assignments and no time is wasted. My students work in teacher-directed small groups as well as independent groups. Some of the work is done with white boards so my students need dry erase markers in a variety of colors. My students also use headphones with the listening center and online Math and Reading programs. We need a few more pair. The headphones I am requesting are the best and can hold up to daily use.

These supplies will keep the classroom running efficiently.

This will help students stay on task by having necessary resources and supplies.
