My Students

My students are absolutely amazing and always willing to learn. This is the first year that I am teaching the journalism class, but I know they will do an amazing job. The students are mostly from lower-income families, but you would never know because they are so rich in personality and drive! They come to school every day knowing that they are bettering themselves and preparing for the twenty first century. I love my students and want the best for them.

My Project

These 3-ring binders, 5 day dividers, and zipper pouch will help my students organize their daily math, language and reading review. I want my students to know how it fells to organize their work and the binder will help them do that. These binders are heavy duty and will withstand daily use by my students.

Everyday my students have to do a review of previous topics taught and the papers get very disorganized and difficult for them to keep track of.

This resource will help them to keep all of their work in a place that is easy to access. It will also make it easier for me to grade it.
