My Students

My students come from a low-income area, with more than half qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch.

This environment can produce certain obstacles to education, such as an inability to meet a child's basic needs, working parents who may lack the time or resources to provide academic support, and a whole slew of other difficulties.

While these challenges exist, they do not deter our students from striving towards goals and succeeding in endeavors.

Through our commitment to developing relationships, building supports, and creating a positive learning environment, I continue to see the gap lessen. My school does everything it can to support the needs of our children both academically and socially. Our children continue to show scholarship, purpose, and grit and need a classroom that will continue to foster their growth.

My Project

My students have big plans for success. These new binders will enable us to continue staying organized with all of our work, including our learning of financial literacy skills.

Binders are essential items that students need as they travel from class to class and from home to school and back again.

These items will help our students learn to be more organized, as well as help them learn to be responsible for getting needed materials to and from school each day. We have used this system for the past few years, and have found it to be very helpful in teaching our students to be responsible and take ownership of getting needed materials to and from school. Parents have also expressed that they like having one place to keep everything for their child.
