My Students

I have the privilege this year of educating the minds of 29 third graders. However, I serve at a school where we are passionately educating 430 amazing kids. Four hundred and thirty students who are eager to learn, excited about reading, mastering language arts, pumped about math, and so enthusiastic about the arts. However, they have come into this grade in the midst of a horrible pandemic, a pandemic that is shining a spotlight on the lack of equity within the school system.

This passionate group of students resides on the Southside of Chicago.

They are tasked with learning in the midst of racial tension, gang violence, and global unrest. However, they brave these issues with a resiliency unknown to me. My goal is to ensure that they have unlimited access to the resources needed despite their zip code.

My Project

Planning for engaging lesson plans can prove to be very time-consuming, yet very necessary. However, Teachers Pay Teachers has made it very easy to access those engaging activities. The activities that I have located on this website have drastically increased student engagement. Nevertheless, paying for these activities can become very expensive. My students need a $200 Teachers Pay Teachers gift card, so they can have access to the materials that will continue to engage them throughout virtual learning, specifically in the subject area of mathematics. Many people are concerned about an academic loss during this time people. However, I am convinced that engaging, creative, activities will help sustain students intellectually until we are able to meet again.
