My Students

Our school is a Title I school located in an area with very limited resources. Our school is made up of a diverse culture where many students come from low socioeconomic households. I currently have 21 students in my classroom. They love having hands-on opportunities to learn. Our whole school has about 400 students.

We try every day to impact our students in any way that will make their lives positive.

A lot of students today, go through more than we could ever imagine. Our students inspire us to come to work every day and make a difference! Our students are very enthusiastic about education and look forward to coming to school. They are always asking about how things work or why events happen.

My Project

At EHPES, we have learned that it is important to teach, model, practice, and praise appropriate behaviors. We have been implementing a School- Wide Positive Behavior and Intervention Support system, which includes expectations for both students and staff members. We refer to these expectations as our Phillips Fantastic Four. Rather than telling children what they may not do, we are telling them what they should do to encourage a more positive learning environment.

Students are rewarded for exhibiting the expected behaviors with verbal praise paired with Phillips Falcon Bucks.

The Falcon Bucks are then exchanged for classroom or school rewards. By donating to this project, students will have the opportunity to earn fidget sensory toys, special pencils, hand sanitizers, pencil erasers, mini notebooks, plush animals toys, and squishy toys. These items will help us praise students who are following our Phillips Fantastic Four and help our school to encourage others to follow their positive actions.
