My Students

Please support my fabulous fifth graders! I am an ESOL teacher at a Title I school with a high poverty and mobility rate. Students here come from all over the world and have a wide range of learning and language abilities. Many of my students come here with little to no English speaking skills and it is truly amazing to see their growth over the course of the school year.

My students are highly motivated and eager to learn English!

They also love sharing details about their countries. During small-group instruction we focus on problem-solving and communication skills in a fun and safe environment. My English Language Learners benefit greatly from hands-on activities and visual representations. They love working with math manipulatives and other hands-on activities and take great pride when they move up a reading level. My students are doing an amazing job working collaboratively while they learn to become effective communicators. Thank you for helping my remarkable group of students!

My Project

In an elementary school with over 900 students, teachers often make their own classroom space for small-group instruction. It's not uncommon to see teachers and students working together at tables or on the floor in the hallway. Specialists like myself who travel between classes must constantly go back and forth between rooms to grab things like books and writing utensils. The few minutes it takes to gather and organize materials for lessons is valuable time that could be spent working with students. In addition, the small handheld whiteboards and flip charts we use to share information are not ideal for students just learning to read and write in English.

Our students and specialists would benefit greatly from a large mobile whiteboard with storage that can be moved easily from one area of the school to another.

When teachers are able to maximize the amount of time spent with students, we will see the positive results. For example, time that would be spent organizing and making multiple trips back and forth for teaching materials could be used for progress-monitoring and reading check-ins. With the addition of a large mobile whiteboard, it won't be necessary for specialists to tote around so many supplies. Please consider helping my wonderful students succeed!
