My Students

My students are a diverse group of individuals that come from all different parts of the five boroughs. My classroom is an ICT with a mix of both students with disabilities and ENL learners.

My students are bright individuals with various academic levels of learning needs.

They value the importance of learning for growth and development. Being that we are a Title I school, there are high percentages of students that come from low-income households while still required to meet the academic standards.

We create different opportunities for student learning and growth in the classroom that is tailored to their learning needs. It is important for my students to learn from one another and value the importance of their education as young children.

My Project

With schools starting to reopen in September and the uncertainty of health and safety of both educators and students, I am requesting air purifiers to keep our classrooms safe and air quality of our classrooms clean. Although the Department of Education has promised improved ventilation and filters for HVAC systems, not all of them have been delivered or have been installed in the building. We can't count on Department of Education as the school year is coming near.

The air purifiers will help provide my students with improved clean air, especially those with seasonal allergies and those sensitive to the air quality.

The health and safety of our educators and students are our top priority.
