My Students

My students,coming from a school district that was shut down by the state for the unjust education, have faced many obstacles the average 50-year-old has never faced. They come to school to learn, despite the lack of stability at home. They come from immigrant homes, are one hundred percent high-risk, and their parents often work two jobs just to make sure that the children have the basic needs for school. My students have a desire to learn and grow. They are eager mathematicians and soaring scientists. They want to be good role models for their younger siblings. They work hard each day, and they come to school with a positive attitude. I want to make sure that my students have the same opportunities to learn as their peers who are not facing the same obstacles.

My students recently suffered a terrible natural disaster, Hurricane Harvey, which was the most destructive hurricane Houston has experienced.

Many families lost their personal belongings, and some had to be evacuated from their houses by force. Our school is in a very flooded area, and they are suffering and wondering how they will ever recover from this tragedy.

My Project

The poverty cycle affects my students in many ways. Poverty can be passed from generation to generation because of many factors. Having access to a subscription of Scholastic Magazine is a great way for my students to explore more informational text. This magazine provides great resources for students to also learn about current events in the world around them. Having access weekly helps my students learn both their science and social studies standards. My students also will be able to access the technology portion of this great magazine by listening to the words read to them, watching real videos about the topic, and to play skills games for assessments. When finished, students can collect and enjoy their colorful magazine at home!

This school year has been extremely hard for several of my students due to the impact of Hurricane Harvey; however, they still work very hard every day to obtain academic achievements.

My students are motivated when they know a "real person" has invested in their educations! Your contribution to this project will help my students develop life skills that will make them better parents, homeowners, tenants, employees, and citizens.
