My Students

The students at our school come from families who struggle to make ends meet. Many of our students are English Language Learners. All they want is a place to feel safe and to learn!

Our students are curious and eager to explore the world around them and bring such life to the school day.

In our classrooms they are historians and mathematicians, readers and writers; they are scientists and explorers. There might be some dancers and soccer players too! Their dreams are as big as their imaginations.

My Project

Our 4th grade students study Virginia history; we learn about Jamestown, Colonial Virginia, and the American Revolution. Going to the real places where history happened brings the past to life in a way that is not possible in a classroom.

Being from a high needs area, this trip will provide our students with an opportunity for hands-on experience that they would not ordinarily have.

They will apply what they have learned in class to the real life place, getting to actually see the places where history happened. Travel broadens horizons and helps students to make new connections between learning and their world.
