My Students

My students are K.I.D.S. They are knowledgeable, inquisitive, determined and successful. The school they attend serves a low income area. For many students the school sometimes is the most consistent part of their day. Unfortunately, in the last five years that hasn’t been very consistent. New teachers make up between 61-76 percent of the staff each year. This is changing now but the students have accelerated at having positive attitudes towards the school. There is a great pride in my students. We have a 95% attendance rate and very low mobility. My school is located in a rural area.

We are the hidden gems of the school district.

The students in my class are thirsty for knowledge. They come to school ready to learn. Eighty percent of the students in the class began our adventure into second grade far below grade level. This hasn’t stopped them from wanting to learn. In fact, it has fueled them. They have big goals, ideas, and hearts.

My Project

The requested earmuffs and stools will benefit in creating a comfortable classroom where kids can focus without distractions. Eighty percent of the class is currently performing below grade level in math and reading. The students are excited and determined learners. The earmuffs and stools would help extend the excitement and help them reach their goals.

Giving students tools to aid in creating a safe and comfortable environment will ease anxiety and stress my students can feel.

A survey given to my students at the beginning of the year indicated that one hundred percent of my class prefers a quite atmosphere to work in. The earmuffs will help to reduce noise level when a student needs a quieter atmosphere. The earmuffs can be used during independent reading, while working with noisy math manipulative, or focusing on writing.

The class has also expressed a preference for sitting on stools. With a class set students would no longer have to take turns using the few we have. Students are less restricted in their movement when using a stool. The stools are also easier to move to another area of the classroom. Students can find that “just right” spot in the class to work. They will also be able to relocate to work together during collaborative assignments and whole group instruction.
