My Students

My students are full of energy and enjoy learning about the importance of bilingualism. It is a Title I school, meaning more than 96% of the students come from a low socioeconomic background. They do a lot of the activities planned with the use of technology. These team activities have been very successful in their enhancement of the Spanish language. Some students struggle at home using MyOn, River Deep, or iReady program used in my lessons because of the lack of resources available that are out of my control. We do our very best to incorporate a variety of different learning strategies.

My Project

I am requesting a vacuum cleaner and mop for my classroom. I want to try to have a vacuum in the classroom, so that the room and the air quality is better for my students. I believe that by cleaning with the vacuum, general cleanliness and air quality of the classroom will be better and then more students will be healthier and miss less days of school because of illness. Students fall behind in their academics every time they are absent, so my goal is to hopefully, eliminate additional reasons for students to miss school.

Cleaner classrooms lead to cleaner air quality.

My plan for this next year is to vacuum my classroom every week to have better air quality. I am going to use some sort of air quality study with my students. We will keep data on air samples, filter cleanliness and vacuum collections to rate and justify the use of a vacuum in a classroom to create a healthier learning environment. I appreciate any help that you can give towards this project.
