My Students

I teach in a low-income neighborhood school that up until recently has had a small enrollment. Many of our students are English language learners which can be challenging. These students benefit from hands-on learning which helps foster language acquisition and mathematics skills.

This year, before school started, Hurricane Harvey hit our area and water was in 80-90% of the homes in our town.

My children have very little to begin the school year with. I would like for them to have as normal of a school year as possible.

I love teaching these children because they are eager to learn even with all the devastation they have seen in their little lives.

My Project

My community was devastated when Hurricane Harvey came to town and 80-90% of the homes in our area flooded. In am already low-income community, this has been an especially devastating event and recovery will be a long process.

My students started school three weeks late due to this disaster and even though 3 weeks doesn't seem like much, students who are learning English need lots of time to be able to learn a new language.

This year has been a HUGE challenge to try and "get back" some of the time that the Hurricane took. The scan and cut (and supplemental materials) will help our classroom have hand-on centers more quickly by eliminating about half the time it takes me working alone to create these materials. In addition to helping create these hands-on centers, I will be able to scan the children's work in order to be able to create digital portfolios. This will allow me to chart their progress and share with parents more effectively. I believe in teaching though hands-on learning and these materials will help me create learning centers more effectively and easier than ever before.
