When thinking about my students, my heart truly is full. I work at a school that has a very diverse population of students with about twenty percent of them being refugees. A majority of my students are English Language Learners and all of our students are on the free lunch program. Our school is our students' and families' safe place. This is my third year teaching and every single day, I wonder how I got so lucky to be able to work with these students and be surrounded by these families day in and day out.
There are many words that I could choose to describe my students, but out of all of them, the word that represents them best is resilient.
No matter what my students are going through in their lives, some of those things being quite unimaginable, they work through them while somehow continuing to work hard in the classroom.
I am proud to be a teacher, but most of all, I am proud to be their teacher.
All of the items that I've selected for my student will help to create a learning environment that children will love to learn in. I plan on using the pens and markers to help make writing final drafts more exciting and personalized.
I hope to be able to create an exciting classroom where students can use supplies to individualize & create freely.
I think that a classroom where the culture is fun-loving & creative ensures a love for learning. I plan to use the supplies that I've requested to not only put this into place, but also to keep an organized, warm, and inviting classroom.
After 3 years of teaching Kindergarten, and after deciding that I'll be doing so again next year, I know that all of these materials will be much appreciated by the littler learners in my classroom.
