My class is full of amazing second graders. My students are amazing, confident, lifelong learners, and eager to be in school each and every day.
I teach in an inner-city Title I school, that educates more than 700 students, where English is not the first language for over half of the families.
At my school, the students come from varied family backgrounds. Some live in traditional households while others live with single parents, extended family, or a foster family. My students' economic situations are just as unique as their family dynamics, and more than sixty percent of our students qualify for free lunch.
Our classroom does not have built-in storage or cabinets. The furniture that we do have in the classroom is old and falling apart and not easy to move. The paint is peeling off the furniture and students can get splinters. By getting new furniture it not only will be easier to pack up at the end of the year because I can just push together the two halves and lock it but students can safely get games for recess and math or reading activities safely without worrying that they will get a splinter. The bookcase will also have shelves that are divided which will help organize all the math and reading games making it easier for students to find what they need.
