My Students

"Mr. L.! Mr. L.! You have to read my story!" - quote from an ESL student who struggles with writing, so eager to show he was able to complete his story with a strategy my co-teacher and I taught him.

How do you describe 32 children that make you love to come to work/school every day?

My students come from a wide range of social, emotional, and economic backgrounds. Each student has different learning needs, and each student requires academic resources that are engaging in order to attain grade level standards. It is an amazing group that loves to please the teachers by working as hard as possible. They are proud and love to be engaged in learning experiences.

My Project

Being in the NYC school district is amazing. The cultures are so diverse! Having 32 students is quite challenging when it comes to ensuring our supplies can make it throughout the school year. This project has a little of everything to allow our students to have a successful year. In my classroom, my students will have the opportunity to decorate our bulletin boards with their work, using the folders, colored and clear tape, and bulletin board letters. Lastly, they will be able to create their own name plate/I.D. badge to carry with them around the school or on class trips.

By donating to this project, you're allowing the children to take ownership of their learning and classroom environment.

My kids love to be creative. The laminator will help preserve their masterpieces. They also enjoy studying and working independently. The study corrals will allow them to do just that, free of surrounding distractions.

We appreciate anything you can do to help our students have the most successful and colorful year we can! Thank you all.
