My Students

70% of our school district is low income. Many of our low socioeconomic students are living in deplorable conditions. For some, clean clothes, hot food and 2 parents are luxuries. This puts our young students at a severe disadvantage. Basic school supplies are an expense our struggling families just can not afford. These same students having nothing of their own, have shown exemplary compassion, love and understanding for others.

I've seen a child give away his own ice cream to a classmate, he told me it was because he gets ice cream at home and his friend never does.

One girl, having very little, donated her hair, after seeing a girl her own age go through cancer treatments. I even heard a girl once tell her friend who didn't want to go home they could come home and live with her. "My Mom won't mind." she said.

I am blessed to work in such a district where the students show such compassion for each other while often receiveing little of it in return. These children deserve the best education we can give them. Money shouldn't be the barrier that prevents our students from becoming successful.

My Project

Whole group guided lessons are a staple in our class. These lessons allow me to model how numbers, letters and eventually words and sentences are formed. Students come to the rug with whiteboards, and markers for guided practice. The whiteboards allow me to monitor, assess and correct formation and grasp. What becomes a problem is the fact that the markers are difficult for little hands to grasp properly and marker caps vanish mysteriously. Our whiteboards are old cut up shower board which is scratched and stained by years of use. Dry erase markers have become a precious commodity. By having LCD tablets, students will be able to avoid all of these problems and focus on increasing their learning.

By using digital writers, such as Boogie Boards, we eliminate the economic cost of markers, paper, and, and increase student success.

Our classroom was affected by Hurricane Harvey.
