My Students

In this small community in Texas, our students have disadvantages for academic growth. Our schools have little to no technology or teacher resources to provide our students with the tools to be successful to their fullest potential. Most of our students are "At-Risk" or at a socioeconomic disadvantage. Teachers are constantly spending money out of their pockets for students' needs or for incentives, and this is a low paying district as it is. It's troubling to know that over 85-90% of our students and their parents take no pride in their education because they feel our district doesn't care, when we do care, it's just that we aren't as fortunate as other districts.

My Project

Students can enjoy reading books that relate to content being covered in mathematics. Books about fractions and measurements can help students connect real world situations for what is being taught and see that there is purpose.

Most of our students feel that reading is more of a chore and is not fun or entertaining; therefore, struggle during our assessments, such as STAAR, that requires so much of it.

With a comfy couch and floor seat, reading time will be seen as a reward and something to look forward to as opposed to sitting on regular, uncomfortably desks.

While enjoying their reading time, they are able to pace themselves with a colored and sound signaling timer to let them know it's time to transition in a non-chaotic, manner. Cute, fun and purposeful.
