I teach 8th grade in a Title I school in an economically disadvantaged area.
My students are bright and persevering individuals who, despite the hardships they face, come to school each day ready to learn.
My classes are comprised of a variety of students. Some come from low socioeconomic status, are second language learners, as well as high achievers.
The materials I have requested will help encourage student participation during class as well as participation in after school tutorials. The fidget toys will help students to better focus on their assignment and help filter out any extra sensory information. The snacks will be used as an incentive to encourage students to stay for after school programs that will help recover some of the knowledge that was lost during these unprecedented times. Times have been tough for both students and teachers. I want my students to feel comfortable in their choice to return to class and have a sense of normalcy again.
