My Students

I have 30 wonderful and bright students. I work in a neighborhood school in Chicago. I teach ESL and special education students language arts, math, science, social studies, health, and a zillion life lessons a day. It is an extremely diverse area, and the students in our school are from various backgrounds, making our class a melting pot of ethnicities. There are six different languages spoken in my classroom, and it represents a wide variety of individuals with different social and economic backgrounds.

The school where I work is great.

The principal/staff all work together to benefit student learning. I have been working at this school for sixteen years. Unfortunately, the school lacks funds to purchase necessary supplies that are greatly needed. The school cannot provide the funds needed to purchase materials since we face tough budget cuts this year. As an educator, I continually try to find what will be the best for my students. This at times is very difficult, but can be accomplished. My school would be able to purchase materials for students, but unfortunately their are no funds available at this time.

My Project

My students would love to have the collection of Junie B. Jones, Amelia Bedelia and Pokemon books. My students love to read books. Unfortunately, the school is unable to provide funds for books. I have been providing students with a few copies of the series of Junie B. Jones, Amelia Bedelia and Pokemon. My students read and completed a literature unit with one of the stories which assists in comprehension and understanding of the book. This has shown me as a teacher that exposing students to great books does improve the students' knowledge. I have noticed that these types of literature books bring great interest for students to begin reading chapter books. We as teachers need to educate our students of the importance of understanding and loving literature.
