My Students

Our students come from a low-income area, with more than half qualifying for free or reduced-price lunches.

This environment can produce certain obstacles to education, such as an inability to meet a child's basic needs, working parents who may lack the time or resources to provide academic supports, and a whole slew of other difficulties.

While these challenges exist, they do not deter our students from striving towards goals and succeeding in endeavors.

Through our commitment to developing relationships, building supports, and creating a positive learning environment, I continue to see the gap lessen. Our school does everything it can to support the needs of our children both academically and socially. Our children continue to show scholarship, purpose, and grit and need a classroom that will continue to foster their growth.

My Project

Today's student has grown up with a screen in front of them, and by having them analyze and connect movies that connect to our Social Studies curriculum , they will be more engaged and demonstrate their knowledge. My students need an external DVD drive and movies to practice applying the connection with modern technology. Struggling learners do not read at home and will not speak in in class discussions when reading literature in class; however, if you ask them to apply the learning objectives to movies, these students will speak up and the class is engaged in sharing their knowledge.

This year I hope to extend learning by exposing students to various movies that connect to our curriculum as we finish a standard and have them demonstrate mastery of the content .
