My Students

The students who are in my classroom live in a very poor area of the inner city. Our school is a Title I school, so all of our students qualify for free lunches. Keeping these hardships in mind, our students and parents are some of the most wonderful people I have ever worked with.

They are caring and full of life.

For some of my students, I am the only thing that remains constant in their lives. A lot of my students come from shelters or single parent families with lots of siblings. Although my school is a Title I school, I have never felt more loved than I do with the students I teach, or more rewarded.

My Project

This school year I am trying to open up a more mindful space for students. Due to lack of space, I have not been able to open a classroom library space in the past years. With a corner book shelf, the students can sit on both sides to create a little reading library nook. I will also be using this space for a calm down space with a bin full of different manipulatives to support students. I will also be using magnetic rods to hang anchor charts above the book shelf with various strategies as well as reminders of our classroom library rules.
