I work in Clark County School District (CCSD) in Las Vegas, Nevada. CCSD is the 5th largest school district in the nation: servicing over 324,000 students in the 2019-2020 school year.
I work at a Title I school where 83.5% of the students receive free lunch.
Many of the students at our school are part of the “lunch bunch.” They receive take home bags of food so they can have food over the weekend. We also have a clothing closet to help students who need help getting adequate clothing.
Because many of the children must face issues that are linked to their lower socioeconomic status, I work extra hard to make sure that every child gets the optimal learning experience each day. I also endeavor to build a positive relationship with each and every child and parent with whom I interact each day. Their smiles and warm hugs keep me motivated to keep doing my best!
Part of my role is to work with groups of first graders who are struggling in Literacy. I'm particularly interested in motivating students to improve in the area of listening and speaking.
Many struggling learners lack confidence and/or motivation.
It is my hope that having a fun motivating atmosphere will help those struggling learners to feel confident and safe.
Having a microphone that is also a ball can help to add movement, motivation, and encourage hesitant learners to participate; especially when they know they have to pay attention so that they can catch and use the ball when its their turn.
