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 and staff all work together to benefit student learning. I have been working at this school for nineteen years. Unfortunately, the school lack 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, there are no funds available at this time.

My Project

The Math journals and Math Centers build students' skills for concepts in reading and writing and math. Students will be able to solve Math problems and record these concepts. Hands-on activities are so important at this grade level. The journals will make difficult concepts in reading, writing and math easier to grasp. Having these materials, I will be able to make centers using these important math concepts. All of these materials are essential for keeping kids on the right track for learning. These materials will be used to benefit my kids' learning, which is so important to me as an educator.

Your donation will ensure that my students have necessary tools and materials that will assist them in their learning.

I need these materials for my ESL Students to continue their education, to learn English, and to be able to complete classwork with the use of these journals. Your help will ensure that my students get a better education and are successful. English language learners strive to learn English. We need to able to give students the proper tools to succeed.
