My Students

The students in my classroom are eager learners. They work together well and enjoy exploring. Three-fourths of my class are students with special needs and the other fourth are students who are English language learners. A majority of my students have never touched a computer outside of school.

I teach 4th grade in an inner-city public school district just north of New York City.

Our students come from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. A majority of our students come from poverty level homes or broken homes. In many instances, the adults with whom the students reside cannot assist them in their schoolwork because of the language barrier. In addition, a large proportion (approximately 57%) of the students are eligible for the State Free Lunch Program.

My Project

Our classroom library is in desperate need of a facelift. Our current library display is a great hand-me-down that has seen better days. Our books are falling between broken metal racks and end up on the floor. My students love the read the books in our library but it is difficult when all of the books are located in a 2-foot area. With these new bins, our library will be more inviting to my students as well as providing them with more access to our classroom library books. Additionally, it will assist us in making sure that our library is leveled for all of my students.
