My Students

My students are incredibly motivated to learn. More specifically, they are motivated to learn. My students are 3rd grades from diverse backgrounds.

These students are motivated by their desire to better themselves and their lives.

Most of my students are students of color and are either children of immigrants or immigrants themselves. They live in a low-income area and, unfortunately, our school does not always have the budget to provide the resources necessary. It is our job as educators to provide those various resources and opportunities so that every student can receive the best education possible.

My Project

Mindfulness is very important in a classroom. We need to help students realize that their mind is an important part of their health. My students have been learning how they can be both emotionally and physically healthy.

My students know that in order to be healthy, we need to take care of our bodies and our minds.

We use a curriculum to help us work on mindfulness so that we can make sure our brains are ready to learn. While it is possible to practice mindfulness and to stay physically and emotionally healthy without tools, tools can help students to do these things.

I am requesting practical tools such as tissues, hand sanitizer, and sanitary wipes to keep our classroom clean so that we can stay physically healthy. Other tools like fidget tools, sensory bottles, noise cancelling headphones, and Post-its, will help us to stay emotionally healthy as we use them in conjunction with our mindfulness curriculum.
