Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

I'm proud to say that I work at the school that I attended as a child. It is a high-poverty, Title I school in New York. All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My students are faced with many challenges inside and outside the classroom.

They struggle personally and academically and have diverse needs. My class is an Integrated Co-Teaching (ICT) class that consists of general education students, English as a new language (ENL) students, and children who receive special education services. This special class has two teachers, my partner and me, a certified Special Education teacher. Students living in homeless shelters travel from other parts of the city to our school every day. Families that are new to the country (ENL) have the added burden of learning to communicate in English.

Despite the challenges they face daily, my students are filled with energy, are happy, and are motivated to learn. They are scientists, singers, mathematicians, leaders, comedians, readers, writers, teachers, dancers, me, and you; they are everything!

My Project

Your donation to this project will allow me to purchase activities from Teachers Pay Teachers. The resources are created by teachers in every subject including math, science, art, reading and social studies. Having access to these resources will lots of time because I will not have to search for or create new materials.

The Teachers Pay Teachers website is an amazing resource to purchase differentiated activities to reach every student.

My students with learning disabilities often need a visual representation of what's being taught. Teachers Pay Teachers offers slide shows to align with many topics. The slide shows are always a nice addition to other resources that we have.

Having this gift card from Teachers Pay Teachers means that any time we are covering a new topic, I will be able to purchase engaging resources to use for my classroom.
