My Students

As a bilingual teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. My plan is to make their experience in the classroom like a home away from home.

My students are very energetic and eager to learn.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. I have a mix of students who come from single-parent homes to homes with grandparents to homes with both parents.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I treat them like they were my own children (even though I do not have any of my own yet). I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. K

By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping​ to inspire our learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

The materials I have chosen like the bean bag chairs will give my students the chance to have that flexible seating choice they need while they learn in my classroom. The multi-color seating pads will also provide my students another choice to seat in the classroom with some comfort while learning. I have students who have ADHD and being able to sit on a bean bag chair or a comfort pad or even the faux fur chair will help them stay focused.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, but you will also​ ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
