As an educator in an inner city district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
Many of my students come from backgrounds where they must have a job to help support their families and school takes a back seat.
Our school has made great strides in preparing our students for life after high school and we want to continue that success this school year.
By letting every student start off with equal fitting, the pressure of students lacking what other have eliminates frustration which allows more ability to learn carefree. Students are able to use supplies provided by the teacher to focus more on their learning in the classroom especially for the students who transfer straight from over seas.
For example within all math classes, the greatest tool is a pencil.
It sets the tone to be okay to make mistakes because it comes with an eraser attach to it. Also to make math more interesting we add color to text and projects and make it more engaging to students than traditional black and white.
