My Students

I teach reading to many different classes of brilliant girls in New York City. Many of my students are English language learners and children with special needs. Most qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

All of my students are creative, thoughtful, and eager learners, and much of their knowledge this year has been expressed through their literacy and play.

It has been so exciting to see them fully engaged each day as they learn through collaboration and play with their peers.

I teach 27 bright and beautiful second graders in a high-needs area of New York. My students and I have been working intensively to get to grade level proficiency in reading. We set realistic reading goals and are working to make at least one year's growth. They have a goal-setting mindset.

My Project

I am requesting Halloween bags,favors, and candy to fill the treat bags. I want my students to have a memorable school year, so to kick off fall, I want to welcome the Fall season and celebrate Halloween in a fun way at school. Students will go tick or treating safely in the classroom, while carrying their own trick or treat bags. The great thing about these bags is that they are reusable, so my students can use it at home to told other treats, or to bring their lunch or snack in a special treat bag. The candy will be hidden in the classroom and they will go on a scavenger hunt around the classroom looking for hidden candy.

Halloween is usually a pretty dangerous day for the children living in our neighborhood.

I want to give them a safe experience filled with all the goodies!
