My Students

Our school is a Title 1 school where most of my students come from low-income families with limited home support. Our school community is hardworking and welcoming to all.

My school's demographics are extremely diverse as our school has students with many different needs.

We have English Language Learners, students with disabilities, and various other needs. Many of my students are creative and energetic. I wish to get this project funded to continue to spark that energy and light in my students!!

My Project

We use the computers often in the classroom and my students have trouble focusing because of the noise level. We are constantly doing small group work and work on the floor often. We also use whiteboards constantly in our room and need a new one.

Being blessed with these engaging and comfortable resources will greatly help my students have productive days!

Having a pair of headphones for each of my students will greatly help them focus and gain interest in their tasks. Having a seat cushion to sit on will help my students feel welcomed and comfortable in the classroom! My students look at the whiteboards to copy homework and practice math vocabulary daily.

Please help my students feel welcomed and in our classroom and be the best learners they can be!
