My Students

The students at my school come from a low socioeconomic background, wherein 90% of them qualify for free or reduced meals. The population consists of mostly Hispanics, from countries like Cuba, Puerto Rico, Honduras, and several others.

As a teacher in a low-income community, I am trying to keep my students interested in the sciences by mixing the use of technology and hands-on, real life experiences.

Some of the students in my classes suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), and/or are ESL students (English as a Second Language). Regardless of these challenges, my students are very determined to succeed in school and life.

My Project

Recess time is when my students have an opportunity to get out of the classroom and be active. This is a time for the kids to be outside and use of some potential energy.

During recess time I try to promote physical activities and the basketball challenge kit can help us learn coordination and team work, additionally the fiction cars and Newton's cradle show us about movement.

Lately, it seems that students are less likely to be outside during non-school hours than they are to be using a tablet or other kind of electronic. While electronics are necessary to understand this day and age, it is also very important for children to learn that being active and healthy is equally important.
