My Students

My students are Latinos/Latinas. Some have just come to America in the last 3 years, while others were born in America. All of them are ELL students eager to learn the language of the country they now live in! Learning a new language can be difficult, but with your help in providing the right materials in the classroom, and my duty to bring best practices in instructing ELLs, they can achieve their goals and become successful, multilingual students! Thank you!

My Project

Having these esstential classroom supplies can help instruction and learning flow smoothly for my English Language Learners! These classroom supplies like pens, colored pencils, paper, tape, sharpies, highlighters, post its, scissors, trays, folders, and a desk organizer allow myself and students to learn organIzational skills. They will also allow me to create lesson plans that include drawing, as creating visuals for ELL learners is crucial in their learning. With these items, I can maintain a clean, organized, and inviting classroom where my students can feel well provided for. Many of my students can not afford basic supplies, so this will benefit this tremendously! Thank you for your donation!
