My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, smart and very busy.

They like to move, and they love to hear stories, read and receive lots of attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households, and all receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experiences during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our littlest learners to continue on a path of academic success.

My Project

The areas my kindergarten students struggle with the most are listening and focusing attention on what's important. Allowing my students choices regarding which types of seating they can use will give them an outlet for all the extra energy and allow them to focus more closely on academics and what's important. We need stools and Bouncy Bands. The kindergartners who struggle because they cannot control their focus will be given the opportunity to learn in ways that meet their individual learning needs with these new seating options. I look forward to seeing tremendous growth in their academic performance and also in their ability to focus and stay on task. Thank you!
