My Students

I teach at a Title I high school in a priority district. All of the students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My classroom is a mixed grade-level, as well as a mixed academic-level classroom.

Therefore, my class includes English Language Learners, special education students, a large range of academic abilities, and many students who come from a struggling economic environment. These struggles have led to an increase in failing classes and students not attending school. And, often when these students do attend, they are extremely disengaged.

Our students, like all students, deserve learning opportunities and access to information to help them become successful, contributing members of society. Our students are full of passion, energy, and excitement. They take pride in their successes, especially when overcoming obstacles. They are always very excited to try new technology, but have extremely limited means to do so since most live around the poverty line. And, I take pride and joy in the challenge of finding ways to meet their personal needs to help them achieve.

My Project

As I teach photography from home these materials will truly help my students while we are distance learning together. The arts department does not have textbooks and many concepts that are normally taught in person now must be taught online. These books will demonstrate to my students exactly what the assignment is and my students will be fully engaged and focused while I teach using a color coded system.

My students will be able to see what I am writing and stay engaged in the activity.

With the purchase of these books and color coded system, I am able to create clear color coded assignments that align with due dates and the importance of the assignment. This system will carry into my classroom when we return. These learning materials will make a difference in my students' distant learning from home.
