My Students

The students in my class face several challenges both in an out of the classroom as our school is located in a high poverty neighborhood. Despite any challenges they may face, my hope is that in our school, we provide high quality and meaningful learning experiences.

The goal is for students to be excited to come to school every day and to be consistently and actively engaged.

Creating a classroom that is welcoming and comfortable for students is a major priority.

My Project

Starting off the school year with essential supplies is necessary to ensure a successful school year. We will use these supplies on a daily basis for assignments and projects.

Many of the students in my classroom are unable to even come to school with pencils and paper when the school year begins.

It is so beneficial for them to walk in on that first day of school not having to worry about the fact that they were unable to bring in their own supplies. All of the supplies purchased will be on their tables ready for them on the first day of school.
