I teach at a Title I Program Improvement school in an under-served community. All my students take part in our free breakfast and lunch program. My students face many challenges and their individual academic and personal needs are diverse. Family challenges range from language to economic.
Although there is a lot of uncertainty in their lives, my classroom is a place where they are loved, listened to, and taught to persevere!
Every day my students walk into my classroom eager to engage in conversation, explore, and show their kindness to each other. This year my students are more diverse than ever and their ability to share their experiences and ideas is a vital part of their learning development. Our goal is to celebrate our differences and discover our similarities!
My goal is to build self-confidence in my students by developing self-expression of who they are through our art activities and interactive playtime with peers. Our differences need to be celebrated but also reflected throughout my students on an educational day.
I want my students to see themselves and people that look like them, in all aspects of their learning experience.
The art supplies are intended to help my students show their peers and school community who they are by being about to illustrate their differences. The interactive play items reflect the diverse range of people that work and play together in our classrooms and in our communities.
