My Students

My school is a wonderful and unique place for learning. What makes this place so special are the kids that walk through our doors each day. I teach at a Title I, a low-income school in Kentucky. Many of my students come from challenging home lives. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Over 60% of our students are English Language Learners.

We have students from all over the world including Kenya, Cuba, Tanzania, Thailand, Vietnam, El Salvador, Puerto Rico, and the Congo. These students come with unique backgrounds and experiences to share, but they have to work twice as hard. My students learn English while becoming literate in their own language as well. Despite the many challenges my students face, they come to school excited to learn, so that one day they can lead a successful life.

My Project

In my second grade classroom, I am always aiming to teach the Common Core Standards in a creative way. I also try to make my lessons relevant to my students' lives.

My students need Scholastic news magazines to read engaging nonfiction articles and learn about the world around them.

I will use these current event articles as resources to teach my students nonfiction reading and writing standards.

I am very passionate about leading my kids on a pathway of academic success, but I also want my students to leave my classroom realizing the value of educating themselves on current events. My students will use this Scholastic subscription to stay informed and conduct research for writing projects. Thank you for taking interest in my students and this project!
