My Students

I teach in a large urban public school in New York. The majority of our students are immigrants from very diverse backgrounds, including the Dominican Republic, Bangladesh, West African and Latin America. More than half of our student population is learning English as a new language.

While culturally our students are diverse, economically 94% of our students come from low-income households and qualify to receive reduced price or free breakfast and lunch.

Recently the city’s initiative, “Breakfast in the Classroom” has been a very successful program in our school, which ensured that our students received the nutrients and energy needed to begin their academic day.

Despite the day-to-day obstacles, our students work very hard to get into well-reputed high schools within the City. In the recent years, a few of our alumni got acceptance to the city’s prestigious specialized high schools. Our students need your support to fund resources to further their education.

My Project

My students are very dedicated and hardworking. Despite the economic hardships in our community, they make the effort to do their best in everything they do. Unfortunately, the classroom seating arrangement is not meeting their needs.

21-century students need choices in seating in the classroom.

Some students work best independently, so they need a quiet zone. Others prefer to work collaboratively, so they need a dining table to work together. Lastly, some students prefer to sit on the rug and work on a coffee table. Providing these seating options will not only motivate students to do better but create excitement to come to class.
