My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Each day they are encourage to leave everything at the door and when they are here I try to create innovative and meaningful learning experiences for them.

All of my students receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status.

Many students are raised in homes where parents work multiple jobs to get by and the students are educationally unsupported. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". I know I am unable to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experiences at school.

One way I plan to help the students succeed in school is by creating a learning environment they want to come to each and every day. With these requested materials you can help my students feel welcomed and successful at school.

My Project

My students absolutely love to have a flexible environment. They have many opportunities to select where they would like to sit to complete their work throughout the day.

These items will help extend some of the choices they have.

The lap desks give students a hard item to write on rather than clip boards on the floor. I already have the perfect pillows to go with the seats to make this a popular seating item in our class.

The large timer will also be displayed on my whiteboard by the students exit directions. It will help them know exactly how much time they have to complete their work regardless of where they are in the classroom.
