My Students

Our school supports a growing community of ambitious learners from the South Bronx. Most of the students at this school live in low income housing and/or non-permanent apartments. The previous school was a failing school, before this school opened in 2013. Since opening, decreased violent behaviors has put learning at the forefront of the school day. Students come to school feeling safe and ready to learn.

Our school serves students in grades K-5 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, and a safe learning environment.

As a result, we are consistently one of the top-performing schools in our district. Our goal is to prepare our students for success in high school and college, and beyond. While our students continue to grow academically, our teachers and students are limited by the resources available.

My Project

My students need a bright organized learning environment. These bins will help us keep their supplies in order, have a clear paper turn in system, have a color coded system for differentiation, and organize our library by interest for maximum reading enjoyment, all while making the classroom bright and inviting.

So many of our students come from chaotic home environments and these bins will help give them the organized, bright, and inviting classroom they deserve.

We will use the bins to help them have clear systems and structures which will increase instructional time, independence and autonomy over their own learning.
