Each and every one of my students is amazing! They each have something unique and special about them and its my job to figure it out within the three years they are in my class. Middle School is a tough age to experience and live through and that is why I teach at this level.
My students come from a wide variety of backgrounds with the majority of them being dysfunctional in one way or another.
Along with the different home lives, many of them are also low income. To me, this means there are a lot of experiences they are missing out on and some they are getting that I couldn't even handle.
Along with everything else, all students now face technology overload. They love all the gadgets and access to everything but they don't realize what they are doing to themselves. It's incredible to watch them interact with each other and enjoy themselves and not realize it. It creates a better social atmosphere without something buzzing or beeping.
Roller skates are needed to support our unit on skating. I choose skates over blades to give the kids a variety. Some students do better on blades while others will appreciate the stability and balance of skates.
The variety of ladies skates that I ordered will help us keep them organized and easy to use.
The fact that they will have skates that work properly and all the parts are attached will be a huge improvement. The girls are always excited to get the skates on and get going as soon as they can. This is such a great social activity for everyone.
