My Students

My students are beautiful and brilliant. Our class consists of multi-level learners. Our school is a high-poverty, Title I school, meaning that 100% of our students receive free or reduced-priced lunch. A fraction of my students are homeless, and many of my other students have houses or apartments they share with one or more families. Some of my students do not have a bed to sleep on. I've noticed they are hungry in the mornings and by midday. We are an extended day school where the kids stay until 4:05.

Our school is located in a high-poverty neighborhood.

My students work very hard every day. Our class has a 98% attendance rate, which means the students rarely miss school. We value our learning time.

My students come from multi-ethnic backgrounds, each with distinctive cultural traditions. In our classroom, we blend our traditions to form strong community ties.

My Project

The cases of paper will be used for writing paper, home-work packets, math, and newsletters. My students are all different, so I make copies of writing paper. Each copy is different because of special lines that meet the needs of each student. Homework will be tailored to meet each student's needs. Instead of using the same material for the class, I would be able to differentiate their home-work packets.

As a teacher, I go through a lot of copy paper.

I purchase a case each year with my own money, and it is not enough. I find myself begging parents for copy paper. I work at a title I school. Most parents cannot afford to send in a pack of paper. If they do send a pack it only lasts for a week or less. It would not be fair to only make copies for the children who bring in paper. We really need this paper. Thank you for take the time to assist us.
