My Students

I am truly blessed to be a first year teacher to such an amazing group of sweet and creative fourth graders! My students face problems bigger than themselves and bigger than their age should have to endure since they come from a low income community in Camden, NJ. I strive to make school a place where they can come and just be kids.

Many students in my classroom come in saying they have difficulty completing practice assignments at home because of lack of supplies and resources.

When in school, some supplies are provided for my students. However, when students go home these resources are not as readily available for them.

Every one of my students has a thirst for knowledge. They ask so many questions throughout the day and try to connect everything we are doing to their own lives. Thus, creating an atmosphere where their learning has a purpose. My students are curious and funny. They make every lesson fun by how engaged they can be on any topic. They love to be creative and I am constantly pushing myself to find fun and hands-on activities to teach to help foster their wondrous minds!

My Project

These materials will help make a difference in my student's learning because it will allow them some comfort while being forced to take online standardized testing. The headphones in this project will help my students focus while being on the computer.

Many of my students do not even have a folder to bring to school let alone personal headphones to use.

These headphones will be used as classroom ones that can cancel out any excess noise while they are trying to take tests. The floor seats in this project will be used as a flexible seating option for my students. Our classroom is fortunate enough to already have some and they are a huge hit! The students love being able to sit comfortably somewhere with back support that isn't just their desk and chair.
