I teach at a Title I school that is located in an area of New York City, in a high poverty area. Many students come from low-income homes where little or no English is spoken. Students also receive free breakfast and lunch. Students in my school truly love learning.
My school has a social and academic climate that provides students with a strong feeling of belonging.
This school year, I will be teaching 32 eager 4th graders of mixed abilities and backgrounds. I will make every effort to help my students develop the proper skills needed for college, the work force, and everyday living.
Abraham Lincoln once said, "You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today." As a teacher, I am responsible for having a safe, mess-free, organized classroom library; a library that is inviting to my students as they book shop on their own each morning.
The white baskets will be utilized in my classroom library to provide students with a mess-free and safe experience.
The baskets that I have are old, broken, and are falling apart because of overuse. I even had to tape some baskets in order to allow students to take out or return books independently. These baskets will surely help reduce clutter! My students will also learn how to take care and appreciate our new library as they use it each day. My students will be responsible and organized with your help!
