My Students

Middle school can be tough. Socially, emotionally, and academically, there can be lots of challenges for students in the early teen years. My students are learning English and adapting to a new culture while navigating these difficult years, and this creates an extra layer of challenge.

My English language learner students are resilient, resourceful, and caring young teens.

These students have been through a great deal beyond their control in their short lives, but they use multiple talents and strengths to overcome current obstacles. We share hands-on experiences as a springboard for launching into a new language. Investigating STEM topics, history, and the arts in our language arts classroom allows my older new readers to develop key reading and writing skills with age-appropriate materials.

My Project

I am requesting fine point dry erase markers for my students to use as they work out math problems on their individual whiteboards. Many students prefer the fine point markers for careful, neat work on their boards.

The pencils and glue sticks will be used in our classroom on a daily basis to build writing and math skills with lots of fun activities.

These pencils come already sharpened and ready to use. Having a supply of freshly sharpened pencils helps keep us on task and working throughout each day. The glue sticks are easy to use and far less messy than drippy bottles of liquid glue.

Thank you for supporting learning by providing these basic supplies.
