My Students

I love my country, and I love my students. My students come to me with patriotism already instilled, and it is one of my life's joys to motivate them to become better citizens.

My student demographic is 90% Title I, minority, rural, in a poverty-stricken​ area.

I am determined to make a difference in their lives, and I do believe I am.

My students, while motivated, lack the familial, community, and school resources necessary to be all they can be.

My Project

The dry erase markers will enhance our classroom learning and the students will be able to show their work on the dry board. The erase markers are very important to make learning transparent. The toner will allow students to print material in the classroom. My classroom is a place where my students enjoy working as a group!

Every student has an opportunity to bring his or her idea on activity day and they’re thankful for the opportunities to share their drawing with the class.

Each student will be responsible for the operations of equipment on their assigned activity day. My school limited resources makes it very difficult for my class to print need material on activity days for daily grades and test days. My district requires a minimal of two assignments per week. This project will help me in my effort to motivate young to be better citizens.
