My Students

My students come from a very high poverty environment. Many are from homes where education and literacy are not a high priority due to parents' work schedules or difficulties meeting the individual needs of their children.

In my classroom, I am not only teaching students literacy and writing skills but life skills, manners, honesty, compassion, patience, and cooperation.

For most, the primary love, positive feedback, and nourishment they will receive for the day will come from my classroom and the school.

My Project

We need individual dry eraser boards, drawing papers, pencils, and markers in our classroom to make learning more engaging.

Studies show that students who are actively involved in learning learn more and retain more of what they have learned.

The individual dry erase boards will provide an opportunity for students to immediately show what they know in class. Additionally, drawing paper, markers, and pencils will provide students with the opportunity to create colorful, meaningful projects related to items they are studying. These also provide an excellent opportunity for students to share their information with the class.
