My Students

My average day in the classroom begins when I welcome my eighth grade students, including regular students, special education students, and students with emotional needs. I want my students to succeed.

My students like to participate in the school drama club which is why I sponsor this activity.

I teach in a large, diverse, K-8 high poverty school in an urban area of Philadelphia that experiences crime. Our school receives Title I funding, and the entire school is eligible for free breakfast and lunch. The students come to school eager to learn from various living situations such as single parents, foster homes, homeless shelters, or extended family living.

My students are the most eccentric, funny, and smart kids you would ever want to meet. Our skill levels and overall level of support vary by student. Some of my students require additional academic support, and some require additional emotional support. One thing that is universal is our desire to work together.

On the first day of school, we identify ourselves as a family. A family takes care of one another and looks out for one another. This is what we do. We work together to accomplish our goals.

My Project

This project is requesting essential supplies that our classroom needs to continue progressing through the school year. Basic classroom supplies are essential for our academic needs. Supplies such as rubber bands, paper clips, binder clips, staples, Command hooks, label makers (to label and identify containers) and colored pencils are everyday needs in our classroom. Replacing some of these used items will greatly help us continue reaching for our goals.

In addition, I want my students to feel comfortable working in class, answering questions and content with their everyday tasks.

With this in minds, I like to have some treats and snacks available in our classroom to lighten the mood on dreary days, reward good behavior, and encourage thoughtful participation.
