My Students

We are a school located in an urban community consisting of over 500 students with all different ethnicities making up our school. We currently have 203 students identified as English Language Learners. In addition to the various ethnicities at our school, our students mainly come from a high poverty background. One hundred percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch daily.

My goal is to help my students build their educational foundation.

Students come to school each day with the knowledge that our classroom is a safe place to grow and learn together. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can to be college and career ready.

My Project

The file holders and organizers I have requested for this project will help to de-clutter the classroom. When my students come to class they have various folders and notebooks to keep track of. The more folders and notebooks that they need to manage the more likely they will lose things. With these organizers the students will be able to keep all their materials from class in one place. I am hoping that by using this system of organization that it will relieve a major burden and make class easier to manage.

Classroom organization is a key component to any successful classroom.

As teachers, we want to make sure that the students have a place for their homework, classwork and supplies. I think that these organizers are a perfect way to help set my ELL students up for a successful school year and teach them the organizational skills that they will need for life.
