My Students

This year, I have twenty-five energetic, young learners in my fourth-grade classroom. At our school, we are incredibly fortunate to have students from around the globe: we educate children from both Dominican Republic, as well as the Ivory Coast. In our classroom community, students collaborate with one another to meet academic goals, and in the process learn how to support one another.

As LBJ so ardently believed, "nothing -- nothing at all -- matters more than trained intelligence.

It is the key not only to success in life, but it is the key to meaning in life." Ninety-one percent of our students at our school receive free- or reduced-lunch; this program benefits those children who are most in need. For example, a family of four making $30,000 annually will qualify for the program (130% of the federal poverty level). According to studies, "growing up in poverty is one of the greatest impediments to a child’s cognitive development and his ability to learn."

At our school, we strive to find ways to overcome this challenge by encouraging our children to dream BIG!

My Project

With the adoption of the Common Core standards, one of the biggest shifts has been a trend toward exposing and encouraging our elementary-aged students to read nonfiction. In this way, children are more likely to develop a broad knowledge base. Scholastic News is a compilation of current events, as well as student-centered stories that are incredibly popular with children.

Scholastic News offers children a wonderful collection of both human interest stories, exposés, as well as opinion pieces about social and political issues.

The magazines will offer children an opportunity to read and enjoy nonfiction regularly, and in this way will supplement our threadbare nonfiction classroom library. In addition, not only does the subscription provide each child with their own magazine, but each student is also afforded access to an online component which includes videos, tutorials, as well as more in-depth coverage.
