My Students

Our students are energetic learners in a DC community. We are a K-5 Education Campus with a strong arts-integrated curriculum. Students come from primarily low-income households, so they rely on the school and library resources to fulfill their love of reading and learning.

Our school is in the heart of a welcoming community with strong parent support for reading and education.

My special needs students have social and psychological needs that require resources that would support their specific learning styles.

When asked what students like about coming to my classroom, one student responded “I like Mr. O’D’s room because I feel safe!”

My Project

Our students attend school in a southeast Washington DC school with limited funding. While the classroom is inviting and the environment is positive, the available resources are limited. The students I work in grades pre-K to 5th have been identified with special learning needs in math and elementary literacy skills

This project contains basic math with Math In a Flash; a set of write and wipe markers; translucent letters, numbers and pattern blocks; and some literacy learning manipulatives with Leveled Sight Word cards that these students need for a strong foundation to build on.

By donating to this project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement that will take them through their academic lives.
