My Students

As a teacher and the K-5 Math Leader in a Title I elementary school, I often times notice that our students are not exposed to science outside of the classroom. Over seventy percent of our campus receives free or reduced-price lunch and often times, we have students who are not capable of even having their parents supply their own school supplies.

Our school is located in an area that was hit and affected by Hurricane Harvey, but our students are actively coming to school eager to learn.

In my classroom, I work hard to ensure a safe, secure and comfortable environment for learning and seek ways to make learning innovative. We have created a culture on our campus where our students actually look forward to the bus pulling up at their houses in the morning to bring them to school.

These kids will take advantage of any learning opportunity that is brought their way. Our motto at our campus is Reach for the Stars and our students do their best to reach beyond them.

My Project

Positive Behavioral Incentives Systems (PBIS) are great ways to create a great school learning environment. These incentives attached to this project will be items that are in our store.

When students have an incentive to behave, it increases their academic performance.

Items included in our PBIS store include several small trinkets such as fidget toys, slime kits, stem kits, sensory toys, expo markers, pens, pencils, stickers, and other incentive toys.

All of these incentives will go in the store and students will have to get a punch card signed by their teacher to go to the store and get different items. Our student's parents will run the store.
