Our school serves students in grades Kinder through sixth. We provide a rigorous education to all our students and provide opportunities to help our students learn and experience the world where they otherwise may not get the opportunities. Our school is classified as a Title I school and most of our student population qualifies for free and reduced-price lunch. This means that although we may not have the funding or access to as many programs or activities, we still strive for the best.
My first-grade students will need to build a strong foundation to help them succeed in life.
They come from bilingual, impoverished families. They are some of the most caring, compassionate, and down to earth students I am privileged to know. Our goal is to prepare our students not only for the next topic or grade level but to prepare them for high school and college. We are constantly inspiring our students to become first-generation college students and we are showing them why it is important for them to continue with their education.
With these magazines, my students will be able to develop and gain the background knowledge needed to be able to be successful in their educational careers. Many of my students do not come with the experiences that most students from other non-title one schools have. These magazines provide students with non-fiction stories and include lots of photographs that promotes interest in learning in a variety of topics. These topics include things that might not otherwise get taught throughout the school year. This allows my students to find what interests them at a young age and allows them to continue to want to learn more about those topics.
