My Students

My 7th grade students are energetic with curious minds. Many of them come from low-income households and English is not their primary language. Middle school can be a tough time, especially when you have academic responsibilities as well as household ones. A majority of their parents work 12 hours a day and my students are required to tend to their younger siblings.

"Develop a passion for learning; If you do, you will never cease to grow" - A D'Angelo.

School gives them the opportunity to "be a kid" and focus on their growth. Growth as a young adult, emotionally, academically and socially.

They come to school filled with questions, eager to see what new scientific adventure awaits them. Even though there are family struggles, that does not extinguish the light that I see burning brightly everyday when they come into my classroom.

My students' passion for learning is evident in their attendance. They are in school and ready to learn!

My Project

I would like to ask for a subscription to "Time for Kids" Magazine. I have used it in the past and I have seen how well students respond to it. "Time" offers recent news that is from around the world. The best part is that it is written at a middle school level, with additional support for differentiation. The vocabulary words are at their level making the reading and comprehension so much easier.

"Time for Kids" delivers positive news, giving youth a different perspective on the world.

In this day and age, you turn on the TV and there is more negative news than positive. My students see more negative interactions outside their door than positive ones.

You will make it possible for each of my students to be well informed about what goes on outside of their community. You will allow my students to get that different perspective, to learn that there is more than just negativity in the world.

The news that they will be reading about is current. As an adult, I enjoy reading "Time" because of its articles and the points that it raises, so why not let the students know about their world using their terminology.
