My Students

I teach First Grade in an urban Midwestern school with students from diverse city neighborhoods and backgrounds. We are a Title I school with a high percentage of students who come from low-income households. It is my job to ensure that all of my students meet challenging academic standards and provide them with a love of learning that will last them a lifetime.

The expectations and standards in First Grade are set high from day one.

First Graders today are reading and comprehending difficult texts. They are writing personal narratives as well as informative and opinion pieces. They are adding, subtracting and solving complex story problems. The learning is amazing for these 6 and 7-year-old children, but it takes a great deal of focus, engagement and differentiated instruction.

My Project

The warm weather is here and it will be waiting for us when we return to school in August. My classroom is extremely hot and it makes learning difficult. Having whole room air circulating fans will help us to stay cool during the hottest months of the year. My young students have a hard time focusing on their work and completing tasks when they are sweaty and uncomfortable. We need your help to cool things down. These fans will allow my students to learn in a comfortable environment. They will be able to read, write and learn new math skills without worrying about the stickiness of the heat. They will be free of the agitation that heat causes and will excel!
