My Students

My average day in the classroom begins when I welcome my eighth-grade students, including regular, special, and emotional needs children, into our class. I want my students to succeed. My students like to participate in the school drama club, which is why I sponsor this activity. I teach in a large, diverse, K-8 high poverty school in an urban area of Philadelphia that experiences crime. Our school receives Title I funding, and the entire school is eligible for free breakfast and lunch. The students come to school eager to learn from various living situations such as single parents, foster homes, homeless shelters, or extended family living.

My students are the most eccentric, funny, and smart kids you would ever want to meet.

Our skill levels and overall level of support vary by student. Some of my students require additional academic support, and some require additional emotional support. One thing that is universal is our desire to work together.

On the first day of school, we identify ourselves as "a family." A family takes care of one another and looks out for one another. This is what we do. We work together to accomplish our goals.

My Project

My students are such a wonderful group of young adults. They love creating and building new things in the classroom everyday. It is for this reason, that I like to provide these opportunities in the classroom.

We need these supplies to use in our year-long project to create new and wonderful things in the classroom.

Each student is responsible for creating a scrapbook detailing their lives throughout the year. This helps us to look at things from many different perspectives (including various subjects). The supply kits and scotch tape are necessary tools to create something wonderful.

In addition, some of my students would greatly benefit from having a more quiet environment to work in, hence the need for a pair of noise-cancelling headphones. I want to help ALL of my students be successful in their daily lives!
