My Students

Our school is a diverse, loving community filled with students from all different religions, ethnic backgrounds, and learning styles.

Our school is a Title I school in an urban community.

Our teachers work hard each day with limited resources to provide a quality and fair education to all six hundred students.

Many of our students have special needs, are English Language Learners, or require extra support to meet grade level benchmarks. Teachers spend most of their own money to create, out of the box, creative ways to help every student, no matter what their background or learning need, become lifelong learners.

My Project

My students need more, new flexible seating options. With these new floor chairs, sensory cushions and chair pockets, students will have more choices to where they feel most comfortable sitting. The more comfortable their bodies are the better their brains can work!

Students will also benefit from differentiated sight word puzzles.

These three level puzzles will help both struggling readers and students in need of enrichment. These puzzles are also a great alternative for students who struggle with writing to build and spell sight words. Puzzles are a great way to work the brain and body in many different ways!
